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.

WATCHES AND WARNINGS

DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 400 AM CDT (0900 UTC), the center of Subtropical Depression
Alberto was located near latitude 32.3 North, longitude 86.8 West.
The depression is moving toward the north-northwest near 13 mph
(20 km/h). A faster northward to north-northwestward motion is
expected during the next few days. On the forecast track, the
center of Alberto will move over central and northern Alabama
through this morning. The system is forecast to move over the
Tennessee Valley later today and into the Ohio Valley and Great
Lakes region on Wednesday and Thursday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 30 mph (45 km/h) with higher gusts.
Continued weakening is forecast as Alberto moves farther inland, and
the system is expected to degenerate into a remnant low by Tuesday
evening. The Montgomery airport recently reported a wind gust of 43
mph (69 km/h).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 995 mb (29.39 inches).

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
RAINFALL: Alberto is expected to produce 2 to 6 inches of rain from
Alabama northward into the southern Great Lakes and from north
Florida into the southern Appalachians through Thursday. Isolated
maximum storm totals of 12 inches are possible over the Florida
Panhandle and Alabama. These rains may produce flooding and flash
flooding.

WIND: A few gusts to tropical-storm force are possible across
portions of central and northern Alabama this morning.

TORNADOES: A tornado or two may occur today from southern Kentucky
to parts of Georgia.

SURF: Swells generated by Alberto will continue to affect the
eastern and northern Gulf Coast today. These swells are likely to
cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. For more
information, consult products from your local weather office.
