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:

2/26 -  10:59 AM: I had some DSL connection problems at the house this morning. Robert from Fairpoint came by and we seem to be back up once again. Winter today, much colder than it has been of late. The snowpack here in Peterborough was at 26" 12 days ago. This morning it was at zero! We have patches of snow, and piles around the driveway, but the woods are almost completely free of snow. Cold today and to start Monday, but milder air will once again return to the region later Monday. There may be some mixed precipitation to start Tuesday, but then rain will become the rule as a storm system tracks to our west once again through the mid week time frame. Winter will return by weeks end with temps on Friday not expected to break freezing and lows Friday night in the single numbers. Stay tuned. The Flood Watch continues

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
It`ll be blustery and noticeably cooler today behind a departing
cold front. A weak trough will cross the area later today and
that may produce a few mountain snow showers. Low pressure
passes to our north late tonight and Monday and will introduce
warmer air once again to the region. The trailing cold front
will cross the area late Monday. A more significant storm
system will arrive for the mid week period.

SYNOPSIS...MA
High pressure centered south of New England brings dry weather
today and Monday. Cold air briefly visits for today, then milder
air moves back in on Monday. A couple of weather systems will
bring periods of wet weather Tuesday into Thursday. Colder air
returns late next week.

LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/...

Highlights...

* Above average temperatures for next week
* Widespread showers possible Tuesday through late Wednesday
* More seasonable conditions return on Friday

2/25 -  5:11 PM: Line of heavy showers and thunderstorms approaching Keene NH at this hour. The Flood Watch continues. The system pulls away by Sunday morning as we turn partly to mostly sunny and more seasonably cooler. However, this colder air is short lived as we turn milder again for much, if not all, of next week. I think winter may return by next weekend. Stay tuned.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
Unseasonably warm temperatures will come to an end tonight as a
strong cold front will sweep across the region this evening
accompanied by showers and a few thunderstorms. A drier and
colder air mass follows this front for tomorrow into Monday. A
disturbance will approach from the west late Monday and Monday
night, followed by a larger system later in the week.

SYNOPSIS...MA
A strong cold front will cross the region tonight, bringing
showers and a low chance for thunderstorms as this front passes.
Blustery conditions with more seasonable temperatures expected
for Sunday. Well above normal temperatures return Monday, and
likely remain through much of next week. A couple of weather
systems will bring periods of wet weather Tuesday into Thursday.
Colder air looks to return late next week.

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/...
Highlights...

* Above average temperatures for next week
* Widespread showers possible Wednesday/Thursday
* More seasonable conditions return Friday
