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:

2/05 -  6:14 PM: Snow ends. There will be some blowing. 7.5" here in PB. Slippery roads can be expected tonight as things refreeze. Sunny Saturday with temps just above freezing, so a little melting is likely. Everything freezes again Saturday night. Highs around 40° on Sunday will melt things a bit more. Nor'Easter potential for early next week but could be just nuisance snow as well. Stay tuned.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
LOW PRESSURE WILL MOVE NORTHEAST TOWARD THE CANADIAN MARITIMES
TONIGHT WHILE HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS IN FROM THE NORTHWEST. LOW
PRESSURE WILL MOVE THROUGH QUEBEC ON SATURDAY AND MAY PROVIDE A
FEW SNOW SHOWERS TO NORTHERN AREAS SATURDAY NIGHT. IT WILL DRIVE A
COLD FRONT THROUGH NEW ENGLAND ON SUNDAY. LOW PRESSURE IN THE
ATLANTIC WILL TRACK TO THE NORTHEAST WELL TO THE EAST OF CAPE COD
ON MONDAY. ANOTHER LOW PRESSURE WILL TAKE A SIMILAR TRACK ON
TUESDAY AND LINGER OVER THE AREA THROUGH THURSDAY.

SYNOPSIS...MA
STRONG LOW PRESSURE CENTER OFFSHORE MOVES EAST OF THE REGION
ALLOWING WINDS AND SNOWS TO END THIS EVENING EVERYWHERE. COLDER
WEATHER FOLLOWS TONIGHT INTO TOMORROW. HIGH PRESSURE BRINGS DRY
WEATHER THIS WEEKEND WITH ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES BY SUNDAY. A
PERIOD OR TWO OF ACCUMULATING SNOW IS LIKELY MONDAY INTO WEDNESDAY
ESPECIALLY ACROSS EASTERN MA...BUT ITS UNCERTAIN IF THIS WILL
MAINLY BE A NUISANCE EVENT OR A SIGNIFICANT WINTER STORM

LONG TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/...
HIGHLIGHTS...

* DRY WITH RELATIVELY MILD TEMPS SUN
* PERIOD OR TWO OF ACCUMULATING SNOW LIKELY MON-WED ESPECIALLY COAST
* UNCERTAIN IF MON-WED IS NUISANCE SNOW OR SIGNIFICANT WINTER STORM

2/05 -  11:40 AM: Snowfall estimates keep changing. This all ends early this afternoon, but totals over 8" are likely. I have updated the maps as of 11AM.

2/05 -  6:47 AM: It is already snowing here in POB and I can hear the plows outside. To our far south rain is falling but even there that will change to snow. Winter Weather Advisories and some Winter Storm warnings have shifted north and east. PB is now under a winter weather advisory for 2" to 4" , while Keene is expecting only 1" to 3" so no advisory out there. The heaviest snow will fall east of PB and south to the coast with 3" to 6" and as much as 8" is expected in some spots. This is a quick moving system. The snow will end here PB around noon and by afternoon along the coast. I have updated all of the maps and advisories. Links can be found here. A dry weekend ahead, seasonably cool with a looming Nor'Easter possible early next week. Stay tuned.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
LOW PRESSURE WILL TRACK QUICKLY NORTHEAST ALONG A STATIONARY
FRONT TODAY. THE WESTERN EDGE OF THE SNOW SHIELD WITH THIS SYSTEM
WILL EXTEND ACROSS SOUTHERN NEW HAMPSHIRE AND MAINE WITH SNOW
ACCUMULATIONS OF 3 TO 6 INCHES. A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE FOLLOWS
FOR TONIGHT INTO SATURDAY. A COLD FRONT WILL CROSS THE REGION
SUNDAY. THERE IS A CHANCE THAT A COASTAL STORM AFFECTS THE REGION
EARLY NEXT WEEK.

SYNOPSIS...MA
COLD FRONT STALLING OFFSHORE WILL PROVIDE A FOCUS FOR LOW PRESSURE
TO TRAVEL ALONG AFTER SUNRISE. THIS LOW PRESSURE WILL DELIVER A
MIX OF RAIN CHANGING TO HEAVY SNOW ACROSS THE REGION. HIGH
PRESSURE BRINGS DRY WEATHER OVER THE WEEKEND...ALTHOUGH A WEAK
COLD FRONT SUNDAY MAY BRING A FEW CLOUDS. A COMPLEX COASTAL STORM
SHOULD AFFECT THE REGION LATER MONDAY INTO WEDNESDAY.

Regional Weather Discussion ...

n most areas of the state we are starting the day 20-25° above normal! While it may last through the day, there are big changes down the road.

Any early morning clouds, fog, or passing showers will give way to partly sunny skies today. It will be unseasonably warm with highs in the mid 40s north to the low/mid 50s far south around midday, then as a westerly wind builds...temperatures will start falling this afternoon.

A weak system will race to our southeast late tonight and early Friday morning. It looks like most of the precipitation from that system will move south of NH, but a few flurries or a little light snow is possible in southeastern areas early in the day. Otherwise, look for partly sunny skies along with cooler conditions (highs back into the 30s to near 40°.)

At this point the weekend is looking mostly dry & cooler with a chance of a passing flurry or snow shower later Saturday Night and/or early Sunday as a cold front moves in.

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