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:

There will be NO regular Thursday night e-mail this week. E-mails will resume next week.

4/26 -  6:37 PM: Some showers around the region this evening, with drizzle and fog along the coasts. The drizzle will continue but mostly in areas east of Milford NH to the coast. A dense fog advisory is up for all of eastern MA for tomorrow morning. The storm system that brought us all the rain will fall apart to our north with lingering clouds and drizzle along coastal areas into Thursday. Right now rain showers are rotating around the low off the New Jersey coast. There may well be some breaks of sun in western areas on Thursday. A warm front will try to lift north by Friday and our temps will depend on how far it gets. We could be in the upper 70s or the mid 60s. A few showers are possible. I will be posting the weekend outlook forecast above tomorrow morning. There will be NO e-mail Thursday night. They will resume next week.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
Low pressure will slowly weaken and fall apart over Northern New
England allowing for overcast skies and damp conditions to
persist through Thursday night. A cold front will help to sweep
out the cool and wet conditions Friday...with a trend towards
warmer temperatures to start the weekend. That may be short
lived however...as cooler air tries to slip back in from the
north Sunday into Monday.

SYNOPSIS...MA
A few showers, along with areas of drizzle and fog will persist
tonight into Thursday, especially along the coast. A fast
moving disturbance may bring a few more rain showers and perhaps
an isolated thunderstorm very late Thursday night into mid
morning Friday, with mainly dry and warm weather for Friday and
Saturday afternoons. A backdoor cold front crosses the region
Saturday night, bringing much cooler weather on Sunday
especially along the coast. Another cold front will likely bring
a period of showers sometime Monday into early Tuesday.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
Highlights...

* Brief scattered showers and perhaps an isolated t-storm possible
very late Thu night into mid morning Fri

* Dry/very mild to warm temps expected by Friday afternoon

* Warm on Sat away from the south coast with the low risk for a few
afternoon/early evening t-storms

* Turning much cooler Sat night and Sun especially on the coast

* Period of showers likely sometime Mon into early Tue

4/25 -  6:21 AM: An interesting commute down to MA this morning. Rain was falling lightly in Peterborough, Temple Mountain was fogged in, then it was raining quite hard from the eastern side of Temple to Nashua and south. Overcast, cool, and wet today with the heaviest rain continuing in the east. That rain will taper to showers and eventually drizzle and fog over night. Drizzle and a few showers Thursday morning followed by dry weather with lots of clouds around Thursday afternoon. However, there may be some sunny breaks in western and possibly central areas by Thursday afternoon. Temps in the mid 50s today, mid 60s Thursday, and the mid 70s on Friday. Still a chance for a morning shower on Friday in central/western areas.

SYNOPSIS... NH/ME
Cloudy, cool, and wet conditions are expected today through tonight as weakening low pressure along the mid atlantic coast very slowly moves north to over Cape Cod Thursday and then into the Gulf of Maine Thursday night. Expect an inch or two of rain east of the mountains through tonight. By Thursday there will be some improvement west of the mountains with warmer temperatures arriving, while east of the mountains it will remain cloudy and cool. Improving conditions and warmer temperatures across all areas arrive for Friday. A cold front will pass through the region Saturday with Canadian high pressure following for Sunday. Another storm system looks to bring rain early next week.

SYNOPSIS... MA
Low pressure will slowly track up the east coast this morning bringing periods of rain. Low clouds along with some drizzle and fog are expected to linger tonight into Thursday especially along the coast. Very mild to warm afternoons should return Friday and Saturday, with a low risk for a few showers/thunderstorms. Much cooler weather follows Sunday, especially on the coast. Another cold front will likely bring more showers to the region sometime Monday into Tuesday.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/...
Highlights...
* Low clouds/spotty drizzle Thursday with cooler temps on coast
* Mild to warm afternoons Fri/Sat with a low risk for a few thunderstorms
* Backdoor cold front brings much lower temperatures by Sunday
* Period of showers, which may be briefly heavy, sometime Mon/Tue

OWC - Weekender Sales - 4/22/2017

Regional Weather Discussion ...

The last round of heavier April showers this morning before lessening a bit into the afternoon with still some patchy drizzle in areas later this afternoon. It won't be quite as cool today, but still in the 50s for most (but lower 60s are possible later this afternoon up north or out west if you catch a few sunny breaks).
Patchy fog and drizzle will linger tonight as temps ease back into the 40s to lower 50s. There will be a lot of moisture left in the air, so clouds will try to give way to give way to a few more sunny breaks Thursday after an overcast/foggy start. Breaks will be most successful in western and northern areas. Highs will be in the 60s.
Partial sunshine Friday (maybe a morning shower) and Saturday (risk of an afternoon shower) with warmer temps. Highs will be well into the 60s up north to 70s elsewhere. Cooler air will arrive for Sunday.
