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:

4/25 -  6:13 AM: April showers, they come your way...
Low pressure system arrives this morning. It is already raining in Albany NY, and NYC. Rain will overspread the region this morning and become steady. There is a chance for isolated thunderstorms as the soaking rain continues into tonight, then tapers off Thursday morning. There may be some isolated thunderstorms today. Perhaps some sunny breaks late in the day. Sunny start on Friday, but cooler, and a chance for some afternoon showers. The long range charts now show a big warm up for next week. Stay tuned.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
Low pressure moves north into the area today allowing rain to
overspread the area from the southwest in the morning and work
northeast by afternoon. A good soaking rain is expected for most
of the region. This system will slowly exit the region
Thursday. A cold front Saturday evening will allow cooler air to
push back into New England. A warming trend is expected early
next week however.

SYNOPSIS...MA
Low pressure will push northeast from the mid Atlantic coast,
crossing the region today. This will bring locally heavy
downpours may result in some brief poor drainage street flooding
and possibly an isolated thunderstorm or two. Seasonably mild
temperatures will follow for the remainder of the week with
mainly dry weather other than a brief period of rain showers
likely Friday. A cool down will occur Saturday night and Sunday,
but this will be short lived as unseasonably warm temperatures
appear to be in store for the region by the middle of next week.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/...
Highlights...

* A 1-3 hour period of rain showers likely Fri

* Milder Sat with just a few brief afternoon/evening showers possible

* Dry and noticeably cooler Sun with frost potential late Sun night

* Dry weather Mon/Tue/Wed with a significant warming trend and the
potential for 80+ in some locations by the middle of next week

4/24 -  6:01 PM: High pressure across the region is hanging tough this evening. That will slow the advance of rain which is not expected to reach SW NH until the wee hours of Wednesday morning. Rain then overspreads the region with pockets of heavy rain through Wednesday night. The soaking rain tapers to showers early Thursday morning with skies beginning to clear by Thursday evening. Perhaps some sunny breaks late in the day. Sunny on Friday, but cooler. The long range charts now show a big warm up for next week. Stay tuned.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
Low pressure moves north into the area Wednesday and Wednesday
night allowing rain to overspread the area from the southwest
in the morning and work northeast by afternoon. A good soaking
rain is expected for most of the region. This system will slowly
exit the region Thursday. A cold front on Saturday will bring
colder air back into the area, with a freeze possible by Sunday
morning for some of the area.

SYNOPSIS...MA
Low pressure approaching from the southwest will bring a soaking
wind swept rain to the region very late tonight and Wednesday with
localized heavy downpours. This may result in some brief nuisance
poor drainage street flooding. Other than a few brief showers
possible mainly dry weather follows Thursday through Saturday along
with seasonably mild temperatures. A brief cool down expected on
Sunday, but this will be short lived as unseasonably warm
temperatures are possible by the middle of next week.

Highlights...

* Other than a few possible brief showers mainly dry and seasonable
Thu/Fri/Sat

* Dry but noticeably cooler and blustery Sun

* Moderating temps Monday and likely in the 70s Tue & Wed!!!

- 2018 - A year of decisions regarding the continuation of RichLefko.com. I need sponsors!
RichLefko.com needs two new annual sponsors to stay on the web and deliver the weather alerts you need, when you need them. E-mail alerts add up to one of the largest costs at RichLefko.com. I also need to update this website to better handle cell phones, and other portable electronics. I am willing to put in the time and effort, but I need some help to osffset the cost of e-mail, web hosting, and software.
In order to accomplish this I need two additional sponsors to add to the couple I already have. In the past I had several sponsors who have now retired their businesses.
Contact me if you, or someone you know, has a small business and would like to support the continuation of RichLefko.com. It isn't expensive. I do accept donations as well.

Regional Weather Discussion ...

After a much warmer stretch of weather, a damp and cooler Wednesday follows with a few more "April shower" chances to round of the week.

Today will feature a thickening of clouds, some light rain developing in the morning, then turning heavier rain for some during the afternoon. It will be a bit breezy and much cooler (highs checked back into the 50s).

Some lingering showers are likely tonight (with patchy fog) and Thursday morning, with more during the rest of the day in northern NH, while breaks of sun are possible farther south. It will be breezy at times with temps in the 50s to lower 60s.

Mixed skies are expected Friday and Saturday,. Some sun is likely each day, but each we'll run the risk of a few passing showers.

After a cooler Sunday with partial sunshine, another warming trend sets up for next week with temps in the 70s to lower 80s in play.

These "discussions" are from the NWS, or WMUR Manchester NH, or me.
