Stuff to make using the site easier ..

I use abbreviations for many things:
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.

I am based in Peterborough, NH, but the main forecasts (for now) are for Nashua, NH and the region. I send out an email 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 emails 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 email address to: Mail List

 

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 yous" 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.

...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 2 PM THIS AFTERNOON TO
2 PM EDT SATURDAY...

The National Weather Service in Taunton has issued a Winter
Weather Advisory for a mix of snow, sleet and heavy rain, which
is in effect from 2 PM this afternoon to 2 PM EDT Saturday. The
Winter Storm Watch is no longer in effect.

* LOCATIONS...Northeast coastal Massachusetts including the
Boston Metropolitan area.

* HAZARD TYPES...Snow and sleet, mixing with rain late.

* ACCUMULATIONS...2 to 6 inches of snow.

* TIMING...Snow and sleet are possible at times through afternoon
but accumulations will be very light. The precipitation becomes
heavier late this afternoon and evening with snow and/or sleet
the main precipitation type. Snow and sleet may change to rain
for a time during the night, but probably will change back to
snow Saturday morning and may continue into the afternoon.

* IMPACTS...The heavy snow may make some roads hazardous and may
produce widespread power outages due to the weight of the snow
on tree limbs and power lines. Snow may struggle to accumulate
on roadways initially, but when the intensity increases tonight
into tomorrow, there is a higher risk for hazardous travel.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow, sleet, or
freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for
slippery roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while
driving.
