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:

7/29 -  6:35 AM: A warm start to the day with humidity on the rise. It was already 81° in NYC at 6AM. A sunny, hot and humid day ahead with heat advisor to our south. We'll come close to heat advisory levels in Southern NH south to Route 2 today. Highs will reach the low 90s today. A mostly clear and sultry night ahead with lows in the upper 60s to low 70s as you go south. Another warm start to the day on Thursday but the arrival of clouds and then showers ahead of a strong cold front tracking in from the west, will limit heating on Thursday to only the upper 80s. We could reach the low 90s once again if the front is delayed. The storms are expected to be strong to severe with a possible tornado mixed in. In fact, would not be surprised to see a tornado watch on Thursday. See the Hazardous Weather Outlooks above. Still warm, but less humid on Friday with increasing sunshine.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
WARMER THAN NORMAL TEMPERATURES AND HUMID CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE
ACROSS MAINE AND NEW HAMPSHIRE THROUGH THURSDAY. A COLD FRONT
MOVING INTO THE REGION WILL BRING THE THREAT FOR STRONG TO SEVERE
THUNDERSTORMS TO THE REGION THURSDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING. BEHIND
THIS FRONT...SOMEWHAT DRIER AIR WILL FILTER INTO THE REGION FOR
FRIDAY. THIS WEEKEND...A SERIES OF WEAK DISTURBANCES MAY BRING A
FEW SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS PRIMARILY TO THE MOUNTAINS...WITH
TEMPERATURES NEAR OR SLIGHTLY ABOVE SEASONAL NORMALS.

SYNOPSIS...MA
HOT AND HUMID CONDITIONS TODAY THROUGH THURSDAY. A COLD FRONT WILL
BRING SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS LATE THURSDAY AND THURSDAY NIGHT. NOT
AS WARM AND LESS HUMID WEATHER IS EXPECTED FRIDAY INTO THE WEEKEND
AND PROBABLY INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK. WHILE MUCH OF THIS PERIOD WILL BE
DRY...CAN/T RULE OUT AN AFTERNOON AND EVENING THUNDERSTORM EACH
DAY.

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

* PATTERN CHANGE TO MORE SEASONABLE TEMPS IS ACCOMPANIED BY SHOWERS
AND THUNDERSTORMS THU NIGHT

* NOT AS WARM AND HUMID FRIDAY AND BEYOND

* MAINLY DRY WEATHER PREVAILS FRIDAY THRU TUESDAY

7/28 -  6:12 PM: There are a few scattered thunderstorms out there, so most will not see one. They seem concentrated on radar in SE MA and RI. Patchy fog will develop tonight and it will be mild and muggy well into Thursday. Mostly sunny and hot on Wednesday with high humidity and temps in the low 90s. Probably one of the hottest days this summer thus far. A cold front will approach the region by Thursday afternoon and that will set off strong to severe thunderstorms. See the Hazardous Weather Outlooks above. Still pretty warm and humid on Thursday until the front passes. Less humid but still warm in the mid and upper 80s by Friday. Looks like a typical summer pattern setting up with chances of shower/storms each afternoon beyond Friday.
See the August Almanac

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
WARM AND HUMID AIR WILL REMAIN OVER MAINE AND NEW HAMPSHIRE FOR
THE NEXT FEW DAYS. SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE
MAINLY DURING THE LATE AFTERNOON AND EVENING HOURS TODAY... WITH
SOME SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS POSSIBLE. A COLD FRONT WILL CROSS THE
REGION ON THURSDAY WITH MORE THUNDERSTORMS POSSIBLE. A WEAK
DISTURBANCE MAY BRING A FEW SHOWERS TO THE MOUNTAINS FRIDAY. UPPER
LEVEL TROUGH REMAINS IN PLACE THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK BRINGING
PERIODIC FRONTAL PASSAGES AND UNSETTLED WEATHER.

SYNOPSIS...MA
ISOLATED TO SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS WILL COME TO AN END THIS
EVENING. OTHERWISE...HOT AND HUMID CONDITIONS EXPECTED THROUGH
THURSDAY. A COLD FRONT WILL BRING SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS LATE
THURSDAY AND THURSDAY NIGHT. WARM AND LESS HUMID WEATHER IS
EXPECTED FRIDAY INTO THE WEEKEND. THERE WILL BE CHANCES FOR MORE
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS LATE THIS WEEKEND INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK.

7/28 -  8:33 AM: Some strong to severe storms were moving off the northern Maine coast early this morning. The record high for Concord NH was 07° set in 1947. Today we'll be warmer and more humid with highs in the low 80s across southern NH, warmer south. There is a risk of afternoon storms, but less risk than yesterday. However, any storms that do form could contain large hail and be on the strong to severe side. See the Hazardous Weather Outlooks above. Otherwise a typical summer pattern with warm to hot and humid days and a chance of showers and storms each afternoon. The best chance for some of these storms would be in eastern areas as the cooler onshore breeze clashes with the hot/humid air inland. Stay tuned.

OWC "Back to School" Deals - 7/28/2015

Regional Weather Discussion ...

Several areas saw 90+° yesterday as the humidity continues to build. The three H's are in the forecast for the next few days, in some spots that could make a heat wave.

Today and Thursday will be the hottest days of this stretch with temps jumping even higher in many areas with high humidity. In fact, today there is a good chance today could wind up being the hottest day all summer. It should be mostly storm-free (just an isolated shower/thundershower possible in northern NH during the mid to late afternoon). A sea breeze will attempt to cool the beaches some after 3pm.

As a cold front approaches Thursday, it'll be another hot and humid day with temps again reaching into the lower 90s in the southern half of the state. There will likely be some showers and storms (some strong) in the afternoon and evening as the front moves through.

It will cool a little bit (highs back into the 80s) and turn a bit less humid (dew points in the 50s to lower 60s) on Friday, but it should remain quite warm into the upcoming weekend.
