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:

4/19 - 9:06 AM: Sunny and cooler today. High pressure has moved offshore and that will bring the winds in off the ocean. That colder air will keep temps down across the region. Inland highs in the upper 50s and low 60s but only in the low to mid 50s along the coast. Tonight clouds begin to move in as this strong storm system begins to form off the coast. A Flood Watch has been issued for NH where there is still snow to melt. Rainfall of i" to 2" with as much as 3" in some locations is possible. The heaviest rainfall will be Monday night into Tuesday morning but there may be some sunshine by afternoon. A chance of thunderstorms is also possible. A windy, rain swept cold day is expected Monday with highs only in the 40s here in Southern NH. Cool with bouts of showers through all of this upcoming week.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD EAST AND CREST ACROSS THE AREA LATE TODAY
BEFORE SLIDING OFFSHORE TONIGHT. AN INCREASING EASTERLY ONSHORE
FLOW WILL PROVIDE COOL AND DAMP WEATHER MONDAY WITH RAIN CHANCES

Then cooler with periods of showers for most of the mid to late week period.

OWC Sales - "OWC Weekender Specials" - 04/17/15

Regional Weather Discussion ...

This morning is bright and sunny with comfortable temperatures. We'll be watching this afternoon, however, as a cold front brings clouds and showers. There is even a small chance of a passing thunderstorm. The highest chance falls in northern and central NH. In southern NH there's the chance of showers, but not quite as high. The lowest chance for afternoon rain will be in southwestern NH.

High temperatures today will vary quite a bit- up north and at the coast upper 50s will do it for you... in central NH 60s, southern NH mid/upper 60s to near 70.

Cooler air arrives behind the cold front, when those showers and clouds exit tonight. Sunday will be sunny and dry but noticeably cooler (although still a touch above average for this time of year, with highs 55-62°.

The next system with rain arrives Monday afternoon into Tuesday. Boston Marathon runners who finish later in the day will be running in the rain along with a head wind out of the SSE 10-20 mph. Temperatures will be feeling quite cool through most of next week because of an onshore wind right off of the cold Atlantic. Highs in the low 50s for the most part.

These "discussions" come from the National Weather Service, WMUR TV Manchester NH, or me.
