Stuff to make using the site easier ..

I use abbreviations for many things:
PB = Peterborough
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. The Polls page is located under the "Fun" tab in the main menu.

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

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: Live Radar is NOT ACTIVE

4/19 - 8:54 AM: A nice day ahead with sunny skies and mild temps in the upper 50s and low 60s. Cooler along the coast. Gusty winds will develop this afternoon and then die down again after sunset. A nice, sunny, mild Easter Day is expected Sunday with highs in the upper 50s. Next chance of any rain is Tuesday.
Elsewhere: The Southeast will experience another day of widespread moderate to heavy rain on Saturday as a system slowly moves northeastward. Upwards to 2 to 3 inches of rain are possible in the Carolinas, creating a threat for flash flooding. Residual moderate to major riverine flooding in the wake of this system remains a concern over the weekend in parts of Florida, Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi.
SYNOPSIS...
HIGH PRESSURE IN CONTROL WILL RESULT IN A DRY WEEKEND...WITH MILD
AFTERNOON/S EXCEPT FOR CHILLY SEA BREEZES ON THE COAST ON SUNDAY.
THE DRY WEATHER CONTINUES INTO TUESDAY. LOW PRESSURE AND AN

THE REGION TUESDAY NIGHT INTO A GOOD PORTION OF WEDNESDAY. ANOTHER
HIGH BUILDS IN WITH DRY... PLEASANT CONDITIONS INTO LATE NEXT
WEEK.

4/18 - 6:10 PM: A little cooler today than I was hoping for. A surface cold front moving rapidly east from the Great Lakes will cross New England tonight. Perhaps a showers or two overnight. Not as cold tonight with lows around 30° or 34°. The front moves offshore around 7AM. Cold air aloft may produce some clouds but thinking not enough moisture involved for much else. Winds will pick up during the day. Gusting to 32 mph is possible. The winds die down Saturday night with lows once again around 32°. Sunny and a tad cooler on Sunday but with little wind it should feel quite nice for Easter.
SYNOPSIS...
A WEAKENING COLD FRONT WILL MOVE ACROSS SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND
LATER TONIGHT. HIGH PRESSURE WILL THEN BUILD OVER THE REGION
BRINGING DRY AND PLEASANT WEATHER SATURDAY THROUGH MONDAY. LOW
PRESSURE AND AN ASSOCIATED COLD FRONT WILL LIKELY BRING A
PERIOD OF WET WEATHER TO THE REGION SOMETIME LATE TUESDAY INTO
A GOOD PORTION OF WEDNESDAY. ANOTHER HIGH BUILDS IN WITH DRY...
PLEASANT CONDITIONS INTO LATE NEXT WEEK.

There might even be a little drizzle along the immediate coast. Mostly cloudy tonight and not as cold with lows around the low to mid 30s. A weakening front will cross the region on Saturday but does not appear to bring much of any impact. Easter Sunday still looks nice.

Regional Weather Discussion ...

After another cool day on Friday, the Easter weekend offers more seasonable conditions as temperatures climb some. Even warmer air builds in early next week.

Skies will average out mostly sunny, but windy in southern and central NH today while mostly cloudy conditions reside to the far north. A mixed or rain shower is possible in the mountains. It will be breezy and seasonable(upper 40s north to near 60 far south). As the winds pick up in the afternoon there will be an increased fire danger threat due to the dry ground that has yet to "green up".

As High pressure builds in tonight it will be rather chilly under generally clear skies.

Easter Sunday is looking good. Skies will be mostly sunny, and after a chilly start, temps will climb into the 55-60 degree range, except along the coast where the sea breeze will result in highs near 50.

Early next week will be warmer with highs in the 60s to near 70 in a few spots on both Marathon Monday and Tuesday. Best shot of showers will be lateTuesday afternoon and into part of Wednesday as it cools down for midweek.

Have a great weekend!
