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:

7/01 -  7:11 PM: I was out in Keene NH very late this afternoon as the storms approached the area. These clouds turned into a torrential downpour that trained east along route 101. You really could not see to drive. I have about an inch in the rain gauge from the early morning storms and now I have another 3/4" of an inch! These storms were strong with some hail hitting my car and they were headed east towards Nashua and Merrimack. There is a severe storm warning in these areas. That area will continue to shift east this evening. Behind this cold front, cooler and drier air will work into the region during the overnight. High pressure builds in for Thursday and Friday. The 4th of July outlook still remains a bit of a question. There could a couple of showers, but no wash out is anticipated. Check back tomorrow as I post the entire weekend forecast outlook.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
A COLD FRONT WILL CROSS THE REGION EARLY TONIGHT. THIS SYSTEM
WILL BRING SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO THE REGION THROUGH THIS
EVENING...BEFORE HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS IN ON THURSDAY. HIGH
PRESSURE WILL THEN REMAIN IN PLACE THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK. LOW
PRESSURE ALONG THE NEW ENGLAND COASTLINE MAY BRING SHOWERS TO THE
REGION LATE IN THE WEEK.

SYNOPSIS...MA
A COLD FRONT WILL MOVE INTO THE REGION TONIGHT STALLING NEAR THE
SOUTH COAST THURSDAY...BEFORE MOVING OFFSHORE THURSDAY NIGHT.
ASIDE FROM A FEW SHOWERS LATE THURSDAY AND THURSDAY NIGHT OVER THE
CAPE AND ISLANDS...MAINLY DRY AND SEASONABLE WEATHER IS EXPECTED
INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
HIGHLIGHTS...

* SEASONABLE TO SLIGHTLY ABOVE SEASONABLE TEMPERATURES EXPECTED.
* LOW CHANCE OF A SHOWER MAINLY ON THE 4TH.

7/01 -  8:55 AM: Welcome to July. A warm front pushed north early this morning and that brought a round of showers and thunderstorms to Southern NH and MA. Some of these were strong this morning and that prompted some advisories, but these have all been cancelled for now. This batch of showers will taper off this morning. However, a cold front will then approach from the NW and another round of showers and storms are likely. How strong these are will depend on us seeing any sun between this afternoon. Showers and thunderstorms end tonight with clearing late. Sunny through the late week period. Still looking at the 4th. Yesterday it looked dry, today it looks like there might be a couple of showers . Stay tuned.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
LOW PRESSURE WILL PULL A WARM FRONT NORTH INTO THE AREA TODAY...FOLLOWED
BY A TRAILING COLD FRONT EARLY TONIGHT. THIS SYSTEM WILL BRING SHOWERS
AND THUNDERSTORMS TO THE REGION THROUGH THIS EVENING...BEFORE HIGH PRESSURE
BUILDS IN ON THURSDAY. HIGH PRESSURE WILL THEN REMAIN IN PLACE INTO
THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND.

SYNOPSIS...MA
A FRONTAL SYSTEM WILL BRING SHOWERS...AND A CHANCE FOR STRONG TO
SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS...INTO THIS AFTERNOON. THIS FRONT STALLS
NEAR THE SOUTH COAST THURSDAY...BEFORE MOVING OFFSHORE THURSDAY
NIGHT. ASIDE FROM A SPOT SHOWER POSSIBLE SATURDAY...MAINLY DRY AND
SEASONABLE WEATHER IS EXPECTED INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/...
HIGHLIGHTS...

* SEASONABLE TO SLIGHTLY ABOVE SEASONABLE TEMPERATURES EXPECTED.
* LOW CHANCE OF A SHOWER MAINLY ON THE 4TH.

6/30 - 6:44 PM: We had some light showers track across SW NH late this afternoon. There will be a continued chance for some light showers tonight. Complex storm system will move in from the west after 4AM. That will bring showers and thunderstorms to the region. It looks like some of these storms could be strong with hail, but we'll have a better idea in the morning. This system slowly crosses the region with storms ending after midnight on Wednesday night. Sunshine returns on Thursday and to end the week. Right now the 4th looks sunny and dry.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
AN AREA LOW PRESSURE WILL APPROACH FROM THE WEST TONIGHT AND
WILL PASS JUST NORTH OF THE REGION ON WEDNESDAY. THIS SYSTEM WILL
BRING SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO THE REGION ON WEDNESDAY BEFORE
HIGH PRESSURE MOVES IN ON THURSDAY. HIGH PRESSURE THEN REMAINS IN
PLACE INTO THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND.

SYNOPSIS...MA
A FRONTAL SYSTEM WILL BRING A CHANCE OF STRONG TO SEVERE SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS TO THE REGION EARLY WEDNESDAY THROUGH THE AFTERNOON.
THE FRONT STALLS NEAR THE SOUTH COAST INTO THURSDAY BEFORE MOVING
OFFSHORE THURSDAY NIGHT. WEAK HIGH PRESSURE WILL BRING MAINLY DRY
AND SEASONABLY WARM WEATHER FRIDAY INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK...BUT
THERE IS A LOW RISK FOR A FEW SHOWERS ACROSS THE CAPE/ISLANDS
THURSDAY NIGHT INTO FRIDAY NIGHT AS WEAK WAVES OF LOW PRESSURE
TRACK TO THE SOUTH.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/...
HIGHLIGHTS...

* MAINLY DRY AND SEASONABLY WARM THU THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK BUT
LOW RISK OF A FEW SHOWERS CAPE/ISLANDS THU NIGHT INTO FRI NIGHT

OWC 4th of July Sales - 7/1/2015

Regional Weather Discussion ...

Building humidity today means the best rain and storm chances we'll have for the next week or so today.

As dew points creep into the 60s today will feature clouds and on and off showers and thunderstorms, we can't rule out a few gustier storms or locally heavy rain through mid evening. Temperatures will get back into the 70s with a light south wind.

Skies will clear later tonight (with some fog developing overnight,) setting the stage for a nice stretch to take over from tomorrow into and through the holiday weekend, with near normal early July temps!

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