Stuff to make using the site easier ..

I use abbreviations for many things:
PB = Peterborough
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. The Polls page is located under the "Fun" tab in the main menu.

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 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 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:

9/07 - 8:38 AM: Having some serious computer problems. Updates will be brief until I can get them resolved. Meantime, nice day again today. Lots of clouds around this morning, then a break, then more later. Looks like a big chunk of this week is dry. Maybe some rain by Thursday? Have a nice Labor Day.
SYNOPSIS...
HIGH PRESSURE ACROSS NEW ENGLAND BRINGS DRY WEATHER FOR MUCH OF THIS
WEEK. A WEAK COLD FRONT MOVES SOUTH ACROSS OUR REGION TUESDAY NIGHT
INTO WEDNESDAY MORNING. LOW PRESSURE APPROACHES FROM THE SOUTH NEXT
FRIDAY INTO SATURDAY...AND MAY BRING A DECENT RAINFALL.

From the NWS:
PLENTY OF HIGH CLOUDS ACROSS THE REGION WITH A FEW PATCHES OF LOWER
CLOUDS IN WESTERN MASSACHUSETTS. HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE GULF OF MAINE
IS KEEPING US DRY...BUT THE UPPER FLOW FROM THE SOUTHWEST IS RIDING
ENOUGH MOISTURE OVER THE TOP OF THE HIGH TO BRING THE CIRRUS COVER.

WE EXPECT THESE HIGH CLOUDS TO THIN THIS MORNING...THEN THICKEN AGAIN
MID TO LATE AFTERNOON ESPECIALLY IN WESTERN MASS AND CT. THE REASON
FOR THE THICKENING IS A PUSH OF DEEPER HIGH LEVEL MOISTURE DEPICTED
BY THE GFS/RGEM/NAM.

GULF OF MAINE HIGH WILL RETAIN CONTROL OF THE SURFACE WEATHER WITH
DRY AIR...LIGHT WINDS...AND A SEABREEZE. TEMPS ALOFT ARE SIMILAR TO
YESTERDAY...WE WENT WITH SLIGHTLY MILDER MAX TEMPS WITH UPPER 60S
ALONG THE COAST AND MID 70S INLAND.


Regional Weather Discussion ...

UNDER CLEAR TO PARTLY CLOUDY SKIES...TEMPERATURES WERE COOL THIS
MORNING WITH LOWS RANGING FROM 45 TO 55 DEGREES.

FAIR WEATHER HIGH PRESSURE WILL CONTINUE TO DOMINATE OUR WEATHER
THROUGH AT LEAST TUESDAY.

LABOR DAY WEEKEND WILL FINISH UNDER SUNNY SKIES WITH HIGH
TEMPERATURES IN THE UPPER 60S TO MID 70S. TONIGHT WILL BE CLEAR AND
COOL WITH LOWS IN THE 50S...AND TUESDAY WILL BE SUNNY WITH HIGHS IN
THE 70S.

LOOKING TO MID WEEK...HIGH PRESSURE WILL CONTINUE TO DOMINATE OVER
NEW ENGLAND...HOWEVER MOISTURE FROM A LOW PRESSURE AREA OFF THE
CAROLINA COAST COULD GRAZE OUR SOUTH COASTAL AREAS WEDNESDAY INTO
THURSDAY. HIGHS ON WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY WILL RANGE FROM THE MID
60S ALONG THE EAST COAST TO MID 70S INLAND...WITH LOWS AT NIGHT IN
THE MID 40S TO MID 50S.

After exactly 2" of rain in Concord this past weekend, the state capital finishes 4th on the list of all time wettest summers (June through August).
1) 1897 20.49" 2) 1887 20.08" 3) 1872 19.33" 4) 2009 18.19" 5) 1915 17.92" These numbers are for Concord where records go back to 1870.
