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.

9/20 -  6:49 PM: A warm front will push north tonight and that will bring some drizzle and fog into Friday morning. As the front passes, skies will lighten up a bit as some the cloud cover breaks up. It will be a mild day, in the low 70s. A strong cold front will track in from the NW by Friday evening bringing a chance for showers and some thunderstorms Friday night. The front moves offshore by Saturday. Fall begins Saturday night. I am about to send out the every Thursday night weekend forecast e-mail blast. This is sent out to those signed up on the mail list. This mail list is the same one I send out warnings/advisories over the winter. You WANT to be on that list. Scroll down and fill out the form.

SYNOPSIS...MA
High pressure builds into New England tonight bringing clouds
but drier weather. The high moves off to the east Friday,
bringing gusty southerly winds and warmer temperatures. A cold

- 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.

OWC Weekend Sales - 09/14/18

Regional Weather Discussion ...

A little taste of autumn out there today, but a few changes take over for the end of the week and the weekend.

Low clouds early today will give way to some partial sun by late morning and into the afternoon. It will be seasonable with highs in the mid to upper 60s for many and low 70s far west.

A warm front moves through early Friday morning with some clouds/scattered showers (mostly northern areas). Skies will become partly sunny and it will be breezy and warmer (highs in the upper 60s north to the upper 70s far south).

A shower or gustier thunderstorm is possible Friday night but it should clear by early Saturday AM setting up a bright and seasonable weekend with lots of sun each day.

These "discussions" are from the NWS, or WMUR Manchester NH, or me.
