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 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 Please tell your friends and family.

Rich's Local Weather Discussion:

There may be a delay on the Monday morning update.

10/23 -  6:17 PM: The winds will continue to diminish tonight. There is a small chance of a shower around daybreak Monday morning, but dry weather will be the trend here in southern NH. There may be more shower activity towards the coast. There will be another shot of colder air flowing in from the northwest on Monday. Some clouds will be associated with this and cooler temps are on tap for Tuesday. The patter for this week support near or slightly below average temps this week. The next chance for rainfall looks to be Thursday night and Friday.

Tonight clearing occurs across most areas as the dry west flow
continues but slowly diminishes. The cool cyclonic flow will
continue through midweek. By the end of the week another upper
trough will approach and move through the area with more unsettled

Winds diminishing ahead of a clipper-like system overnight tonight
into Monday morning bringing with it a widespread area of rain with
an embedded line of heavier outcomes. With its departure, winds
become blustery out of the W/NW beneath a cool, dry airmass which
continues though midweek. A period of rain is likely Thursday into
Friday as low pressure crosses the region. Seasonable temperatures
are expected for next weekend.


4 pm update...

*/ Highlights...

- Winds diminishing out of the W as we go into evening
- Rain overnight, possibly moderate, maybe a clap of thunder


*/ Highlights...

* Unseasonably chilly but mainly dry Tue/Wed other than a few
ocean effect rain showers across Plymouth County/Cape/Islands

* Lows should drop well down into the 20s Wed night/Thu am

* Period of rain likely sometime Thu into Fri

10/23 -  2:07 PM: Finally, the NWS in Gray Maine has issued a Wind Advisory for NH.

10/23 -  9:53 AM: Slight chance of a shower this morning then varying skies with sun and clouds today. Gusty winds out of the northwest will make it feel colder than the upper 40s and low 50s today. Snow is falling to our north and that will also end by afternoon. The winds will begin to relax a bit by tonight but it will still be breezy on Monday. Lots of clouds around into midweek as weak systems pass through the region. Next chance of any rainfall will be Thursday night or Friday.

Low pressure in Quebec will gradually move further north today. In
its wake rain and snow showers will continue in the mountains
while elsewhere cloudy skies in the morning will give way to some
sun in the afternoon. Windy conditions are expected today. Tonight
clearing occurs across all areas as the dry west flow continues
but diminishes. The cool cyclonic flow will continue through
midweek. By the end of the week another upper trough will approach
and move through the area with more unsettled weather.

A strong storm will move north through eastern Canada and will
continue to bring gusty winds but clearing skies today. A fast
moving low pressure may bring a period of light rain south of the
Mass Pike late tonight and early Mon as it tracks south of New
England. Dry and cool northwest flow will persist Monday afternoon
through Wednesday. High pressure will drifts east of New England
late Thursday followed by a front and possible showers late
Thursday night into Friday.


* Cool and blustery through Tuesday.
* Monitor for frost potential Tuesday night and especially
Wednesday night.
* Risk for wet weather returns late Thursday into Friday.

OWC - Halloween Specials - 10/21/2016

Regional Weather Discussion ...
Wow! Northern NH is waking up to some snow (in many spots, especially with elevation above 3,000 feet)

The snow is winding down this morning in northern areas. Upwards of several
inches stuck in parts of the region up north. Clouds, breaks,
and a few flurries could linger in northern NH today with high
temperatures only reaching the low 40s. Southern and central New
Hampshire can expect morning clouds, then developing sun. It will be
windy and chilly (low/mid 50s).

Tonight, as a weak disturbance passes to our south, it’s possible southern NH could see a couple passing showers possible.

Temps look to run below normal all of the upcoming week with mainly dry
weather (except a few snow showers in northern areas Monday into
early Wednesday). The next shot of rain will come Thursday night into
Friday morning.

Have a great rest of the weekend!
