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: Live Radar is ACTIVE

Note: I will be on vacation starting 7/27--There WILL be updates between 7/28 and 8/3 but not on the usual schedule. Thee will be NO Thursday E-mail blast.

7/31 - 7:41 AM: Cold air aloft will tend to destabilize the atmosphere Thursday and Friday bringing a chance of a shower and a few thunderstorms each afternoon. A stationary front offshore will shift west for the weekend. Confidence is growing for a period of steady rainfall. Not sure if this will be Saturday, Sunday or both this far out. Stay tuned to later updates.
Elsewhere: A wet weather system continues across the southern U.S., with abundant moisture brining heavy rain and a risk of flash flooding to parts of the southern Plains on Wednesday. The heaviest rain will fall across Oklahoma, though flood watches and warnings are in effect eastern Colorado to western Arkansas. The flash flood threat should diminish on Thursday, as the system weakens over Texas.
SYNOPSIS...
A FEW HIT AND MISS SHOWERS/THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED THIS AFTERNOON
AND AGAIN FRIDAY AFTERNOON...MAINLY NORTHWEST OF I-95. THE WEEKEND
FORECAST REMAINS UNCERTAIN BUT THE POTENTIAL FOR A PERIOD OF WET
WEATHER CONTINUES. SEASONABLE TEMPS ARE THEN EXPECTED EARLY NEXT
WEEK.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
HIGHLIGHTS...
* STEADY RAIN LIKELY SOMETIME THIS WEEKEND
* SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS POSSIBLE EARLY NEXT WEEK

7/30 - 8:49 AM: High pressure slips to our east while the Canadian low keeps sending weak waves of low pressure through the flow. Unusually cold air (For this time of year) will destabilize this afternoon and set off a few showers. Most of the day will be dry and sunny with increasing clouds later. Any showers end by evening. Similar set up for Thursday but a better chance of showers and maybe a storm as more humid air moves north on the return flow from the high tracking farther offshore. Looks like Friday is similar with increasing clouds by Friday night and more showers moving in.
SYNOPSIS...
MAINLY DRY/PLEASANT WEATHER TODAY OTHER THAN PERHAPS A BRIEF PASSING
SPRINKLE. A FEW SHOWERS AND PERHAPS A THUNDERSTORM OR TWO ARE
POSSIBLE THU AND FRI...BUT MOST OF THE TIME WILL FEATURE DRY
WEATHER. CONFIDENCE IS INCREASING IN A PERIOD OF STEADY RAIN
SOMETIME THIS WEEKEND AS LOW PRESSURE TRACKS CLOSE TO THE COAST.

7/29 - 7:40 AM: The cold front that brought the wild weather yesterday is now offshore. Expect cold high pressure to build into the region with cool nights and cool (for late July) days. It is highly unusual for a Canadian high to push this far south, this time of year. This is exactly like the pattern that brought us the very cold winter last year. Rest of the week looks mostly sunny and dry, except Thursday when a slight chance of a thunderstorm is possible inland.
Elsewhere: A stalled frontal boundary will set up along the southern and central Rockies for the next couple of days providing focus for showers and thunderstorms. In addition, ample monsoonal moisture will stream in across the southwest bringing enough moisture to introduce a flash flood threat from the Great Basin and Southwest eastward across the central and southern Rockies into the adjacent Plains.
SYNOPSIS...
MAINLY DRY AND LESS HUMID WEATHER FOLLOWS TODAY INTO WEDNESDAY AS A
COLD FRONT SWEEPS OFF THE SOUTHEAST COAST EARLY THIS MORNING. A FEW
SHOWERS AND PERHAPS A THUNDERSTORM ARE POSSIBLE THU AND FRI...BUT
MOST OF THE TIME WILL FEATURE DRY WEATHER. A PERIOD OF STEADY RAIN
IS POSSIBLE SOMETIME THIS WEEKEND IF LOW PRESSURE TRACKS CLOSE
ENOUGH TO THE COAST...BUT CONFIDENCE IS LOW.

NEW OWC Specials begin - 7/24/14

Regional Weather Discussion ...

The more comfortable conditions continue for the next few days, but we aren't making a complete break from the rain and storm chances.

Today starts out with some sunshine after any fog burns off, but clouds will quickly gather after midday with thunderstorms starting to pop up after 1pm. Any thunderstorms that do form between 2-8pm could produce brief heavy downpours, gusty winds and hail. So, keep an eye to the sky for changing conditions! Highs today in the 70s to near 80.

It will turn a bit more humid over the weekend with the sun/cloud combo along with a passing thundershower possible. Saturday is still a bit difficult to pin down at the moment. Low pressure will be coming up the coast along a frontal boundary, but the unclear part is how close it will be to New England. Right now, there's a lot more indications that it will be closer to us, resulting in showers and a threat of thunderstorms. We'll have updates as we get closer.

These "discussions" come from the National Weather Service, WMUR TV Manchester NH, or me.
