Stuff to make using the site easier ..

I use abbreviations for many things:
PB = Peterborough
KE = Keene NH
Precip = Precipitation
SWS = Special Weather Statements
I will continue to add more to this list as I think of them.
I update the forecasts by 7AM and 7PM each day...more frequently if some weather thing is going on. On weekends by 9AM.
Make sure your browser is set to allow "pop-ups" from this site. I use them extensively and there is no danger of any viruses or anything like that.

I am based in Peterborough, NH, but the main forecasts (for now) are for Nashua, NH and the region. I send out an e-mail every Thursday that covers the upcoming weekend forecast. I also send out advisories when issued by the NWS to this list. You will NEVER get SPAM or e-mail from anyone else. I don't share my mail list with anyone. If you'd like to be a part of that mailing, send your e-mail address to: Mail List

What is a "ShortWave"?

Also known as Shortwave Trough; a disturbance in the mid or upper part of the atmosphere which induces upward motion ahead of it. If other conditions are favorable, the upward motion can contribute to thunderstorm development ahead of a shortwave.

MCS = Mesoscale Convective System (Bunch of thunderstorms)

How I started...

I've been a weather hobbyist all of my life. As a child, I used to stand outside in the rain during thunderstorms just to watch the lightning. Back in the '70s getting weather information was a chore. I remember listening to NWS broadcasts during hurricane season and plotting these on a piece of paper. After moving to New England I finally bought my first real weather station made by Davis Instruments. I began to record daily weather data in a journal. I had a few people, where I work, who knew I was a weather nut, ask me to send them an e-mail on the weekend forecast. So two grew to five then 15, then 40, and now my Thursday weekend mail list reaches over 200+ people. I took some web programming classes in the late '90s and a few years after that RichLefko.com was born. I wanted to share my hobby with anyone who was interested, and I am quite overwhelmed with how many people seem to be interested. I've gotten so many "thank you's" for a variety of reasons..."saved my party", "saved my wedding", "saved my life." It's been fun and rewarding all at the same time.
Thanks for visiting RichLefko.com. Please tell your friends and family.

Rich's Local Weather Discussion:

FYI: The regular Thursday evening weekend outlook e-mail blast will be in your mailbox Wednesday evening.

11/22 -  7:50 AM: Two areas of rain are approaching the region at this hour. One if from an offshore developing storm system and that is bringing rain to coastal MA inland. The other area is off to our west and associated with a cold front tracking west from the Great Lakes. Most of the area is above freezing except the north, so this should be a mostly rain event. Rain across the region today until about 3PM or so as the cold front crosses and heads offshore. Gusty winds behind the front and colder air will drop temps today into the upper 30s by this evening, and down into the low to mid 20s tonight. High pressure builds into the region for Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday. Systems are moving fast across the country in this zonal flow. Expect bouts of milder air, followed by a cold blast, followed by milder air into early next week. Travel Weather Map for today, as well as the National outlook for Thanksgiving day, are posted above. I have added a Black Friday map as well.
Expect the every Thursday evening Weekend Outlook e-mail blast TONIGHT instead of Thursday!

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
Low pressure will track southeast of the region today,
bringing a period of mostly rain to the area. A changeover to
snow before ending will be found in the mountains. This low
will pull a cold front across the area this evening.
Thanksgiving will mainly sunny but chilly, with a warming trend
Friday into Saturday. Another cold front crosses the area on
Sunday and could bring some rain or snow showers, with another
blast of cold air expected early next week.

SYNOPSIS...MA
A cold front approaches the region today, and with moisture
working up the eastern seaboard to bring a period of rain this
morning, especially SE New England. Quiet weather Thursday and
Friday. Another shot of wet weather and breezy conditions this
weekend. Drier and milder toward the middle of next week.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/...
*/ Highlights...

- Quiet weather through Friday
- Showers possible at times this weekend, could be breezy
Sunday
- Turning mild Tuesday into Wednesday, could also be breezy

11/21 -  7:01 PM: Increasing clouds tonight as a cold front moves towards the region from the west. Showers will break out around daybreak, or in the morning on Wednesday. This front looks a bit more robust tonight, so expecting more rainfall, possibly up to 1/2" in southern areas. Further north a snow/mix seems likely. The rain ends by evening with colder air moving in from the northwest. A sunny, but chilly, Thanksgiving day is on tap. Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday both look cold and dry. Travel Weather Map for Wednesday, as well as the National outlook for Thanksgiving day are posted above. I have added a Black Friday map as well.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
Low pressure will track southeast of the region on Wednesday,
bringing a period of mostly rain to the area. Some snow will be

Regional Weather Discussion ...

For a lot of folks today is a busy travel day…and we have an approaching system coming at us in two parts.

An approaching cold front from the northwest will spread rain and mixed showers into the North Country later this morning, but could end as some snowflakes later this afternoon. A weak low headed up the coast will bring rain into central and southern NH from mid morning through mid afternoon, most organized closer to the coastline. Highs today will be in the 40s and skies will start to clear from west to east later this afternoon as a breeze picks up out of the northwest.

Lows in the teens and 20s overnight tonight could cause a few slick spots.

It will be bright but chilly on Thanksgiving. Highs will be in the 30s to lower 40s with a westerly breeze.

The sunshine will continue for Black Friday with highs moderating a bit: mid 30s to mid 40s.

It will turn even milder (47-56°) Saturday with an approaching front which could mean a shower or two…that will bring cooler air (but fair skies) for Sunday.

Have a great holiday weekend!
