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:

6/25 -  7:32 PM: The forecast continues to be o track. Not quite as cool tonight as winds shift to the southeast and include more moisture. Warmer by a few degrees on Sunday and more humid under bright sunny skies. More humid on Monday and Tuesday as a cold front presses east drawing humid air up from the south ahead of it. Showers and storms by Tuesday as a slow moving system keeps things unsettled, perhaps into Thursday. Cooler and less humid thereafter. Enjoy this fine stretch of summer weather.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
High pressure moving offshore tonight and remains near the Gulf
of Maine into early next week. This will allow a more humid air
mass to move into the region. A slow moving cold front approaching
from the west brings a chance of showers and thunderstorms
Tuesday, Wednesday and into early Thursday. The front will exit
the region by late Thursday as low pressure passes by to our east.
another trough of low pressure will then approach the region by
next weekend.

SYNOPSIS...MA
High pressure ridge extending across the Northeast U.S. into the
Gulf of Maine will slowly shift to the south of our region, with
very warm and dry conditions through Monday. An approaching cool
front brings showers and possibly some thunder beginning Monday
night and continuing through Thursday. High pressure then brings
dry seasonable weather for the end of next week.

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/...

*/ HIGHLIGHTS...

- Increasing chances of wet weather from N/W beginning Monday Night
- Potential offshore low for late Wednesday into Thursday
- Keeping it dry and near-seasonable for Friday into the Weekend

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
High pressure remains in control over the weekend before moving
offshore later in the the weekend and early next week. This will
allow a more humid air mass to move into the region. A slow
moving cold front approaching from the west brings a chance of
showers and thunderstorms Tuesday, Wednesday and into early
Thursday. The front will exit the region by late Thursday.

SYNOPSIS...MA
Large high pressure ridge extending across the northeast U.S.
into the Gulf of Maine will slowly shift down the coast, with
warm and dry conditions through Monday. An approaching cold
front brings showers and possibly some thunder later Monday
night through Wednesday. High pressure then brings dry

OWC - Weekender Specials - 6/24/2016

Regional Weather Discussion ...

Welcome to the weekend! And what a summertime weekend it will be.... lots of sunshine and warm temperatures.

Expect bright sunshine today. Highs in the mid 80s, though it will be cooler at the coast. Humidity levels will remain low for summer, with dew points mostly ranging in the 40s and low 50s.

A comfortably warm night, with clear skies and temperatures bottoming out in the 50s for most, upper 40s north.

Sunday we'llstart to crank up the heat up a little bit further. Temperatures go into the mid and upper 80s. Hazy sunshine.

It will heat up slightly more on Monday (with a touch more humidity too). Some parts of interior southern NH may see temps at 90! Sunny with clouds increasing late day to the west as a cold front approaches.

Tuesday is when things start to change (and get more comfortable). A cold front will slowly move across the state. There could be early morning thunderstorms, but there's a much better chance of thunderstorms (possibly strong) in the afternoon. Highs in the mid 80s. Finally, temperatures a bit cooler move in mid-week and beyond.

Have a great weekend!
