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:

Note to my weather friends: I will be taking some time off from work this upcoming week. There will be updates but not on any regular schedule. My weather instruments will also be down as I perform annual maintenance. (Yes folks, that is my vacation) Finally, there will be NO Thursday night e-mail next week.

7/26 - 9:08 PM: A cold front will begin to approach the region tonight as high pressure moves offshore. This front will reach the St. Lawrence Valley by daybreak on Thursday. This is a slow moving front with clouds replacing any morning sunshine as the front tracks east during Thursday. Ahead of the front, by early afternoon, showers and thunderstorms will break out. If there is enough heating before the front arrives those showers and storms could strong with small hail. This system exits brining us a partly cloudy Friday and Saturday looks dry as well. A storm system will track east on Friday but will stay to our south. That may bring showers to MA and RI, but NH and Maine look dry.

SYNOPSIS... NH/ME
High pressure will move offshore tonight. A cold front moves across the area on Thursday bringing scattered showers and thunderstorms. High pressure will attempt to build into the region Friday and into the weekend as low pressure moves south of the area. This high will remain established over the Northeast through early next week.

SYNOPSIS...MA
High pressure will remain over the region tonight providing dry cool conditions. The high moves offshore Thursday giving way to slightly more humid conditions along with the risk for a few showers and an isolated thunderstorm, but by no means a washout. A drying trend likely develops Thu night into Fri as a cold front moves through the region and then stalls near the south coast Fri. A coastal storm will push off the mid Atlantic coast, which will bring showers and a few thunderstorms, along with gusty onshore winds with cool temperatures Friday into early this weekend. Dry and seasonable conditions return by early next week.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
Highlights...
* Risk continues for showers and a few thunderstorms possible Fri night and Sat, best chance S coast
* Gusty E-NE winds possible along coastal areas, highest along S coast, Cape Cod and the islands late Fri night into Sat evening
* Dry conditions likely Sunday into early next week

7/24 - 10:08 PM: Low pressure system is moving offshore tonight. Clouds will linger on Tuesday morning with some showers, mostly in the mountains. Cool for mid summer but milder with much more sunshine by Wednesday into Thursday. Some questions on a front moving through later Thursday into Friday. Might be some showers, maybe not. stay tuned.

SYNOPSIS... NH/ME
Low pressure tracking through the Gulf of Maine tonight will keep rain in the forecast through the evening with lingering showers tapering off Tuesday morning. High pressure builds in from the west on Tuesday and shifts offshore on Wednesday. Some warmer air moves in on Wednesday, bringing temperatures back up to near normal. But a cold front pushes toward the area on Thursday, with low pressure possibly forming along the front bringing another chance of rain and cooler temperatures.

SYNOPSIS... MA
Cool and damp conditions will linger into Tuesday. High pressure will bring a return to dry and pleasant weather for Wednesday. Cold front with a surface low pressure wave approaches southern New England Thursday night and exits the area late Friday. Dry weather and seasonable temperatures expected next weekend.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY/...
Highlights...
* Dry weather and seasonable temperatures on Wednesday
* Showers and possible thunderstorms late Thu with showers likely lingering into Fri
* Dry weather and seasonable temperatures likely for the weekend

OWC - Weekender Sale - 07/20/2017

Regional Weather Discussion ...

Scattered showers and downpours through Thursday. Mostly cloudy skies.
Maybe a peek of sun in the afternoon. Highs will be in the 70s.

Sunshine and passing clouds on Friday. There could be more clouds and a small chance of a shower south if a storm system passes closer. Otherwise, partly cloudy skies. Highs in the 70s to near 80.

So far, the weekend looks great for summer activities! Sun and passing clouds Saturday. Very small chance of an early shower in southern areas. Highs in the 70s.
Sunday is even better! Bright sunshine with highs near 80.
