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:

3/26 -  9:26 AM: A cold start to the day but temps will rise above freezing today. Then the fun begins. Low pressure moving NE out of the lower Mississippi Valley today will spread rain into the northeast by tonight. A complicated set up with cold air damming to our north will lead to a period of freezing rain across southern NH tonight into Monday morning. A couple of degrees on either side of the early morning temps could change the precipitation to sleet, or just rain. Freezing Rain Advisory in place until 9AM or 10AM Monday morning with plain rain expected the rest of the day. Stay tuned to later updates. I will probably send an e-mail out on this later today.

Enter the April Rainfall Contest - Win a $199.95 prize from Peters Auto - Nashua NH - Contest Closes April 16

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
High pressure crosses the region today. A warm front will
approach from the southwest on Sunday before a weak wave of low
pressure forms and passes through the Gulf of Maine Monday. This
will provide a round of mixed wintry precipitation Sunday night
into Monday. Low pressure moves north of the region on Tuesday
and drags a cold front through on Wednesday. High pressure will
build in from Canada for the end of the week.
The development of a secondary
surface low tracking to the south of the area serves to increase
confidence in the low level cold air damming, but also raises
the possibility that precipitation may fall as more snow/sleet
as deeper cold air is pulled in to the north of the low. This is
a particularly challenging forecast and it will be worth it for
users to monitor the forecast for updates and changes as the
event begins.

SYNOPSIS...MA
A front will remain stalled to our south today, then push north
as a warm front late tonight into Monday. Another low pressure
will move across southern New England Tuesday, bringing some
rain showers. High pressure brings dry but cooler weather
Wednesday and Thursday. Then more precipitation possible late
Friday into Saturday.

LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/...
Highlights...

* Showery weather ahead of approaching cold front on Tuesday
* Cooler but dry weather for mid-week
* Active weather returns late in the week into the weekend

3/25 -  5:50 PM: The snow will come to an end this evening as high pressure builds in from the north tonight. We had about 1.5" of wet snow today. For a while, it was snowing quite hard. There is a chance of freezing rain across north central and western MA Sunday morning. Otherwise we'll remain dry across much of Southern NH into midday Sunday. By that time drizzle will move into the region with heavier precipitation to follow. The models continue to signal the possibility of freezing rain and sleet for Sunday night/Monday morning. Stay tuned for updates and more details on what may end up being a winter weather advisory. For now, Hazardous Weather Outlook for Southern NH, and a Special Weather Statement for interior MA, north and west.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
A cold front stalls south of the region this evening. High
pressure builds in overnight from the north and will shift east
on Sunday. A warm front will approach from the southwest on
Sunday before a weak wave of low pressure forms and passes
through the Gulf of Maine Monday. This will provide a round of
mixed wintry precipitation Sunday night into Monday. Low
pressure moves north of the region on Tuesday and drags a cold
front through on Wednesday. High pressure will build in from
Canada for the end of the week.

SYNOPSIS...MA
A cold front lingers offshore well south of New England tonight.
The front will then push northward as a warm front Sunday.
A weather system lifts through the Great Lakes Sunday and Monday
bringing a wintry mix inland and wet weather near the coast.
Another low pressure area will move across southern New England
Tuesday bringing some rain showers. High pressure brings dry but
cooler weather Wednesday and Thursday. Then more precipitation
possible late Friday into Saturday.

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/...
Highlights...

* Rain Monday and showery on Tuesday
* Sunshine mid-week
* More precipitation late Friday into Saturday
