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:

12/08 -  6:51 AM: Lots of clouds around the region this morning with temps in the upper 20s to low 30s (These temps will be the highs from Friday onward). We'll see some sunny breaks and highs in the upper 30s and low 40s today. Strong cold front will approach Friday and bring sub-freezing temps to the region on blustery NW winds as Arctic air arrives. Wind chill readings will drop into the teens and single numbers by Friday night. This cold may be followed by a storm system Sunday/Monday with snow possible. See weather graphic #5 above. More details in the every Thursday evening e-mail "Weekend Outlook" blast. Sign up below.
Wintry pattern continues into next week.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
A slow moving broad upper trough over the Great Lakes will move
through southern Canada today and Friday, spreading snow showers
into the mountains as it approaches. Ahead of this broad upper
trough, a weak cold front will cross the area later today and
then followed by an arctic cold front through the region on
Friday bringing gusty northwest winds and much colder temperatures
that will continue through the weekend. The next potential storm
system will approach late Sunday night and Monday.

SYNOPSIS...MA
A strong front crosses the region late today. Mainly dry, but
unseasonably cold temperatures are on tap for our region Friday
into Saturday. Low pressure will likely bring some rain/snow
Sunday into Monday. A shot of arctic air is then expected by mid
to late next week.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
Highlights...
* Unseasonably cold but mainly dry Saturday
* Wintry precipitation possible Sunday into Monday
* Another system may bring precip Tuesday into Wednesday

12/07 -  5:24 PM: Lots of clouds around tonight, some flurries are possible. Early clouds on Thursday with sunshine later in the morning. Temps will be seasonably cold. Strong cold front will approach Friday and bring sub-freezing temps to the region on blustery NW winds. Wind chill readings will drop into the teens and single numbers by Friday night. This cold may be followed by a storm system Sunday/Monday with snow possible. See weather graphic #5 above. I will be posting the weekend forecast in the grid above tomorrow morning, and that will be followed by the every Thursday evening e-mail blast. Sign up below.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
The region will sit between two systems tonight...with skies
remaining mostly cloudy. A flurry or two is not out of the
question...but for the most part it will by dry. The first in a
series of cold fronts will cross the area early Thursday. Mountain
snow showers will increase in coverage...and cold...gusty winds
develop through the day. A second and stronger cold front will
cross the area Thursday night. More widespread snow showers and
the first real cold shot of the season set in overnight. Gusty
northwest winds and mountain snow showers will continue on Friday
behind the departing cold front. Cold high pressure will build in
for the weekend before the next storm system approaches late
Sunday night and into Monday.
High impact Weather: Widespread snow Sunday night/Monday

SYNOPSIS...MA
Drier but cloudy weather continues into the overnight. An arctic
front crosses the region late tomorrow. Mainly dry but
unseasonably cold temperatures are on tap for the region Friday
into Saturday. Low pressure will likely bring at least some
rain/snow and/or even ice sometime Sunday into Monday. A shot of
arctic air is then expected by mid to late next week.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/...

Highlights...

* Unseasonably cold but mainly dry Fri into Sat

* Period of light snow possible Sun into Sun Eve

* Uncertain late Sun night/Mon whether a secondary low brings more
significant rain/ice/snow or misses us to the south

* Shot of arctic air likely mid to late next week

OWC - Deals - 12/07/2016

Regional Weather Discussion ...

Another possible slick morning commute with areas of fog and temps near or below freezing as we start off your day. That should give way to one last fairly "mild" day before colder air wins out for the weekend and beyond.
Clouds and a few sunny breaks today with highs in the 30s to lower 40s. Some snow showers will start to pop up in the North Country, and that will only increase tonight and tomorrow as colder air starts to rush in on a gusty westerly wind Friday. The North Country and White Mountains stand to see several inches of snow (locally over 6" in the normal favored areas) through Saturday morning. Highs will only be in the 20s and 30s on Friday, but it is going to feel colder than that with the wind.

The weekend looks cold, the coldest air of the season so far. With a light NW breeze Saturday and partial sunshine highs will be mainly in the 20s.

Clouds will start drifting in Sunday and some light snow will be possible in the afternoon ahead of the next system possible Sunday night and Monday. Stay tuned for updates on that as we get closer.

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