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:

Early sunshine will give way to a partly cloudy day as an Arctic cold front crosses the region. Might be a flurry or two as it passes. Clearing after with colder temps tonight and Sunday. A weak disturbance will arrive late Sunday night brining light precipitation to the region into Monday. Snow at the onset, then rain and snow, eventually changing to rain showers. No accumulation is expected at this time. After that, we look sunny and dry into the big Thanksgiving holiday, but cold for this time of year.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
A cold front over the Great Lakes will cross the area late
today accompanied by clouds and a few snow showers across the
higher terrain. Canadian high pressure builds into the region
Sunday before a fast moving area of low pressure develops over
the region Sunday night. An Arctic front will cross the region
late Monday, followed by high pressure building into the region
through midweek. A large storm may form along the southeastern
United States coastline late in the week and into next weekend.

SYNOPSIS...MA
West wind aloft from the Great Lakes to New England will bring
dry and chilly weather this weekend. Expect unsettled conditions
Sunday night through Monday as weak low pressure moves across,
bringing periods of light rain and/or snow. More cold air will
move in by mid week into Thanksgiving, though it should remain
dry. Temperatures may begin to moderate toward the end of the
week.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/...
Highlights...

* Weak low pressure brings periods of rain and/or snow late
Sun into Mon
* High pressure brings dry but cold conditions for Wed and
Thanksgiving Day
* Models signaling a potential warm up late this week

11/16 -  5:15 PM: I measured 7" of snow here in Peterborough, NH today. It was a heavy snow. Storm system is exiting the Maritimes at this hour. Clearing and cold tonight with the fresh snowpack on the ground. Lows around 30°. A sunny day on Saturday, breezy, highs in the low 40s so melting will be ongoing, and that snow melt will freeze up Saturday night as we drop into the mid 20s. Sunday starts off with some sun, but increasing clouds as a fast moving system track east out of the NW. Snow and rain seem likely. Stay tuned to later forecasts on this one. Thanksgiving Holiday Travel map is posted in the panels above. Arctic air will be moving into the region for this holiday period.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
A coastal low will exit into the maritimes this evening. An
upper level disturbance will cross the region Saturday. Canadian
high pressure builds into the region Sunday before a fast
moving area of low pressure develops over the region Sunday
night. An Arctic front will cross the region late Monday,
followed by high pressure building into the region through
midweek. A large storm may form along the southeastern United
States coastline late in the week and into next weekend.

Note: Indications continue that a large and slow moving storm may
form along the southeastern seaboard late next week and into the
weekend. Will continue to monitor as we will be entering a high
period of astronomical tides.

SYNOPSIS...MA
Dry and chilly weather continues into Sunday afternoon. Weak
low pressure may bring patchy light rain and/or snow late Sunday
into Monday. Another shot of colder air moves in by the middle
of next week, though it should be mainly dry.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/...

Highlights...

* Weak low pressure brings periods of rain and snow late Sun into
Mon
* Dry and colder mid week
* Potential for warm up toward next weekend

- 2018/2019 - The year of decisions continue 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.

Valid 12Z Sat Nov 17 2018 - 12Z Mon Nov 19 2018

...Snow possible over parts of the Upper Great Lakes, Central Rockies,
Middle Mississippi Valley, and the Northern Mid-Atlantic into parts of New
England...

...Air Stagnation and Air Quality Alerts continue to be in effect for
parts of the Pacific Northwest and California...

A front over parts of the Great Lakes will move eastward off the Northeast
Coast overnight Saturday. The system will aid in producing light snow
over parts of the Lower Great Lakes/Middle Mississippi Valley into parts
of the Northeast, ending overnight Saturday from west to east. In the
wake of the front, lake effect snow will develop over parts of the Upper
Great Lakes through Saturday night. Another front sinking southward from
Central Canada will move into the Northern Tier State into the Upper Great
Lakes Sunday evening into Monday. Light snow will return to the parts of
the Upper Great Lakes Sunday afternoon into Monday as another area of
light snow develops over parts of Northern Plains Sunday evening into
Monday.

A third front extending from the Middle Mississippi Valley to the Southern
Rockies will move eastward to the Ohio Valley/Central Appalachians by
Sunday evening. Areas of rain and snow will develop over parts of the
Central Plains into the Western Ohio Valley by Saturday afternoon that
will move eastward into the Lower Great Lakes/Ohio Valley by Sunday
afternoon. The area of rain and snow will move into parts of the Northern
Mid-Atlantic/Southern New England by overnight Sunday. By Sunday
afternoon the rain and snow over the Ohio Valley/Middle Mississippi Valley
will turn over to all rain and continue into overnight Sunday.

Furthermore, moisture moving northward out of the Western Gulf of Mexico
will aid in producing showers and thunderstorms over parts of the Western
Gulf Coast overnight Saturday through Sunday night. In the meantime,
Arctic high pressure over the Northern High Plains will move southeastward
to the Central Plains by Sunday afternoon. Upslope flow associated with
the clockwise circulation around the high pressure will aid in producing
snow over parts of the Central Rockies on Saturday morning ending by
Saturday evening. The Arctic high will lead to temperatures nearly 25
degrees below average over the Northern/Central Plains.

As the wildfires continue to burn across California, high pressure and
upper-level ridging sits over the Western U.S. leading to air stagnation
and air quality alerts over the region that will persist through Monday.
These alerts are in effect for areas across the Pacific Northwest and
Central/Southern California.

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