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:

I will be taking a break from forecasting for the next week. From Sunday July 15th through Saturday July 21st I will be taking down my weather instruments for annual cleaning and calibration. (Yeah, that is what I do for fun) There will be no website updates through this period and no Thursday evening weekend outlook e-mail. Even I need a break from the weather. I will be posting a forecast out through the end of next week in the "Daily Forecast" section of panels above. I hope you get to enjoy the summer a bit. I hope the weather is nice next week? - Rich Lefko

7/14 -  6:30 PM: Some scattered showers and storms through Sunday. The air has already become more humid today. That humidity will increase Sunday and Monday into Tuesday. A strong cold front will cross the region later Tuesday/Tuesday night. That will bring cooler and much less humid air back into the region. The forecast calls for dry and sunny weather, seasonably warm temps for the rest of the week. I have put on my forecasting hat and populated the daily forecasts through next week. I am taking the week off from forecasting, working on my instruments and a bit of fishing. I hope you can enjoy some of the summer as well. Next update will be around Sunday, 7/22.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
A weak trough of low pressure will result in scattered showers
and thunderstorms tonight and Sunday. Weak high pressure over
the area early on Monday will push offshore during the day. This
will result in warm and humid weather with many areas seeing
high temperatures well into the 80s with the possibility of
lower 90s over southern New Hampshire. A seabreeze may develop
along the coast during the afternoon. Isolated showers and
thunderstorms may also develop in the afternoon. A strong cold
front will move through the region Tuesday, bringing widespread
showers and thunderstorms to the region. Cooler and drier
conditions will return for Wednesday Through Friday.

SYNOPSIS...MA
Humid conditions with a chance for a shower or thunderstorm
continue through Sunday. Hot and humid Monday. An approaching
cold front will bring showers and thunderstorms with locally
heavy rainfall possible Tuesday into Tuesday night. Other than
perhaps some lingering showers early Wednesday, mainly dry
weather is anticipated for the rest of the work week with warm
afternoons but lower humidity.

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/...
Highlights...

* Heat/humidity on Mon away from the immediate coast

* Showers and thunderstorms with a localized urban flash flooding
threat + perhaps a few strong storms Tue/Tue night

* Lingering showers possible early Wed, otherwise mainly dry and
rather warm afternoons the rest of the work week but lower humidity

- 2018 - A year of decisions regarding the continuation of RichLefko.com. I need sponsors!
RichLefko.com needs two new annual sponsors to stay on the web and deliver the weather alerts you need, when you need them. E-mail alerts add up to one of the largest costs at RichLefko.com. I also need to update this website to better handle cell phones, and other portable electronics. I am willing to put in the time and effort, but I need some help to osffset the cost of e-mail, web hosting, and software.
In order to accomplish this I need two additional sponsors to add to the couple I already have. In the past I had several sponsors who have now retired their businesses.
Contact me if you, or someone you know, has a small business and would like to support the continuation of RichLefko.com. It isn't expensive. I do accept donations as well.
