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:

6/19 -  5:47 PM:  Cold front sagging south at this hour. Expect several waves of low pressure to track along this front through Friday morning, then the whole mess pulls away with clearing skies Friday night. There may be some thunderstorms and periods of heavy rain later Thursday and especially Thursday night. Rainfall amounts up to 1"+ are possible, especially if any thunderstorms mix in. A Hazardous Weather Outlook has been posted for MA/CT/RI. The weekend is looking quite nice at this point. Stay tuned.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
Frontal boundary will remain stalled south of New England
overnight as a cold front slowly sags south into northwest
portions of the forecast area. The front will continue to slip
south on Thursday and Thursday night as several waves of low
pressure track northeast along it. The front will push offshore
on Friday morning. High pressure will build in from the west
Friday afternoon through Sunday night. A warm front will push
into the region from the west on Monday and will be quickly
followed by a cold front late Monday night and Tuesday.

SYNOPSIS...MA
Widely scattered showers will be possible through tonight, but
the majority of this time period should feature dry weather. A
more potent storm system impacts the region late Thursday into
Friday with numerous showers and a few embedded thunderstorms
that may contain locally heavy rainfall, especially across
northern and western MA. Dry and seasonable weather returns for
the weekend, then more summery weather for early next week with
a risk for a few showers and thunderstorms at times.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...

Highlights...

* Showers linger Fri, improving from west to east in the afternoon
* Dry/seasonable this weekend with a warming trend
* Warmer temps early next week with the risk for a few showers/t-
storms but majority of the time will be dry

6/19 -  6:26 AM:  Areas of fog around this morning. A mostly cloudy day ahead as a cold front drops south. There may be a shower or storm in the north. As the cold front sags farther south by Wednesday night a wave of low pressure will track from the Ohio Valley into New England Thursday. This will bring several waves of low pressure along this stalled wave with some heavy rain and thunderstorms possible Thursday into Friday. One inch plus of rainfall expected. Right now, it looks like we clear out Friday night. The weekend is looking pretty good, if all stays on track.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
A weak frontal boundary drops into northern New Hampshire and
northwest Maine this afternoon and could trigger a few showers
and thunderstorms as it does so. A cool onshore wind will keep
coastal areas cool while inland areas warm up into the 70s to
near 80 degrees. Low pressure moves out of the Ohio Valley and
toward New England on Thursday, tracking across the Gulf of
Maine Thursday night. This will bring a widespread rainfall to
the region. The low moves away on Friday with rain ending and
drier air moving into the area from Canada. This will bring a
rather nice weekend as temperatures will be near to below normal
with plenty of sunshine.

SYNOPSIS...MA
A few showers remain possible today into early Thursday, but the
majority of this time period should feature dry weather. A more
potent storm system late Thursday into early Friday with
numerous showers and a few embedded thunderstorms that may
contain locally heavy rainfall. Dry and seasonable weather
returns for the weekend, then summer warmth for early next week
with a risk for a few showers and thunderstorms as a cold front
approaches from the west.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/...

Highlights...

* Showers and a few embedded thunderstorms Thursday night with a
low risk for flooding mainly across western and northern MA

* Lingering showers possible Friday morning but mainly dry weather
by afternoon

* Dry/seasonable this weekend with Sun being the warmer of the days

* Warmer with summer-like temps early next week with the risk for a
few showers/t-storms but that majority of the time will be dry
