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.

Record cold and lots of snow were the words used to describe February. I recorded over 37" of snow during the month and the Polar Vortex over James Bay Canada kept the cold air streaming into the region. The Great Lakes were almost completely frozen over.

September Synopsis:

We had another below average month both temperature wise and in rainfall. We actually wiped away the big gains we made in rainfall the preceding months and ended up close to average for year. Meanwhile, high temperatures averaged almost 4° below normal for the month. That would continue the trend that began last winter of colder than normal temperatures. Yeah, I know the politics of "Global Warming" and I don't subscribe to any of that. We are colder, we've been colder than average, and one small point in time on the time line of humanity when we were a slight bit warmer does not equal planetary global warming.
