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:

5/26 -  7:11 AM: High pressure remains in control of our weather for today. Sunny and warm with increasing clouds later in the day as a cold front approaches the region. Chance of showers tonight and showers with thunderstorms on Friday. None of this looks like a wash out but there is a chance for some heavier showers here and there on Friday. The Weekend forecast looks comp0licated. A real scorcher for us on Saturday. Sign up for the every Thursday evening Weekend Forecast Outlook below and join the party!!
The June Almanac is now available

See the 2016 Hurricane Storm Estimates

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
A ridge of high pressure will crest across the area this morning
before sliding offshore this afternoon. Summer like temperatures
will be tempered a bit near the coast as light winds turn onshore
by afternoon. A warm front will stall over the region tonight and
Friday before finally pushing east of the region on Saturday. A
cold front will cross the region Saturday night then stall just to
our south on Sunday. The front will return north as a warm front
on Memorial Day.

SYNOPSIS...MA
Very warm to hot weather will continue through Saturday, but it
will be a bit cooler at times on the immediate coast. A backdoor
cold front will bring cooler weather to eastern MA Sunday with
warm weather continuing elsewhere. Dry weather dominates through
Sunday other than isolated showers/thunderstorms at times. Near or
above normal temperatures continue for much of next week and there
is the potential for a period of more widespread showers Monday
and/or Tuesday.

5/25 -  6:32 PM: There are a few stray showers working from west to east this evening ahead of a cold front. There may even be a T-storm. Then high pressure builds in tonight. Another warm day on Thursday with plenty of sunshine and highs in the low to mid 80s. The cold front returns as a warm front on Thursday night and Friday and that will trigger some showers and thunderstorms once again. Warm with some showers early this weekend, then cooler, still a chance of showers. I don't see any wash out, but stay tuned. I will have the weekend forecast posted in the grid above tomorrow morning followed by the holiday weekend outlook e-mail tomorrow night. Sign up below.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
Sunshine and warmer weather will continue this evening ahead of a
cold front. The front will bring clouds and a few showers and
thunderstorms to the area this into early this evening. A ridge
of high pressure will build over the area tonight...then hold
over the region on Thursday as a warm front approaches from the
west. The warm front will stall over the region Thursday night and
Friday and will finally push east of the region on Saturday. A
cold front will cross the region Saturday night then stall just to
our south on Sunday. The front will return north as a warm front
on Memorial Day.

SYNOPSIS...MA
High pressure off the mid-Atlantic coast will bring very warm
weather to most of the region through Saturday along with
increasing humidity this weekend. It will be cooler at times
along the immediate coast. A backdoor cold front will bring cooler
weather to Rhode Island and eastern Massachusetts Sunday with
warm weather continuing elsewhere. Warmer than normal temperatures
overspread the remainder of the area by early next week. A few
showers and thunderstorms are possible Thursday night into Friday,
and again this weekend but the vast majority of the time will be
dry.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
350 pm update...

Highlights...

* Temperatures warmer than normal much of the time

* Other than isolated showers/thunderstorms many hours of dry
weather this period

OWC Weekend Specials - 5/20/2016

Regional Weather Discussion ...

It was a taste of summer temps today...and it'll be staying warm as we head toward the holiday weekend.

Today will be partly sunny and warm again (in the 80s again for most) with the coolest air (mid to upper 70s) right at the coast with an afternoon sea breeze.

A warm Friday will follow with the sun/cloud combo. A couple of passing showers or thundershowers are possible during the day. First batch may move through early in the morning, then after a break, there could be a couple more popping up later in the day.

Now to the holiday weekend...Saturday is looking bright and very warm (even a bit humid) with a shower or thunderstorm possible in the afternoon. Highs could be up near 90° in places! Winds look like they will turn around to the east/northeast to cool things off on Sunday (70s for highs) with early showers giving way to some sun. At this point, Memorial Day is a bit tricky to call. Our computer guidance is split on keeping it cooler and warming us right back up.... we here in the weather center are leaning toward a warmer day. We will fine tune that part of the forecast as we get closer!

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