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:

9/30 -  7:41 PM: Strong high pressure to our north has prevented the showers falling in MA to reach Southern NH, until this evening. We've had a couple of light sprinkles this evening and more showers are expected. Broad area of low pressure will slowly track across New England this weekend brining scattered showers from time to time. Not a wash out, there will be dry periods. Cool, damp, and raw outside. A chance of showers into Monday. We are watching Hurricane Matthew and the probable track could bring trouble to New England. Still way too early, but the early models are causing some concern. Matthew became the fist major hurricane of the season with winds at 140MPH! Stay tuned.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
An upper level low pressure will slowly meander across the
Northeast through the weekend. Showers will move into New
Hampshire and eventually western Maine this evening and overnight
as the low drifts closer. The low moves overhead on Sunday and
cross the region on Monday brining more scattered showers. High
pressure will build in for the middle of next week.

SYNOPSIS...MA
Low pres moves South of the region through the weekend, yielding
cool and damp conditions. Low pressure over the Ohio Valley lifts
to the Great Lakes, then moves east across New England Monday and
Tuesday. High pressure builds over New England Wednesday and
Thursday. Still watching Hurricane Matthew, but uncertain
information whether it affects New England or not.

9/30 -  6:43 AM: Clouds returned overnight and will thicken as the day progresses. Stubborn cut off low to our south will slowly drift to the NE today and through the weekend. This will be some sprinkles this morning, then a chance of showers this afternoon, then scattered showers tonight through Saturday night. Still overcast on Sunday and still damp. It will feel raw outside with a steady easterly wind, the drizzle and showers making it feel worse. On radar we can see the moisture to our south and SE. Much of this will slowly track northeast today. To our north, expect partly sunny skies. We are watching Tropical Storm Matthew that could bring trouble to New England. Still way too early, but the early models are causing some concern. Stay tuned.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
High pressure over eastern Canada will produce a moist northeast
flow across the waters into the upcoming weekend. Low pressure
will approach from the west on Sunday and will cross the waters on
Monday before heading out to sea on Tuesday as high pressure
builds in from the northeast. High pressure will hold over the
region Wednesday through Friday.

SYNOPSIS...MA
While high pressure remains across Quebec, low pressure will move
along a nearly stationary front south of New England to bring
cloudy, cool conditions with showers and patchy fog through this
weekend. Another low moves east from the Great Lakes across New
England early next week. High pressure then brings dry weather
midweek. Attention then turns to Hurricane Matthew. Still
uncertain what impacts our region will see, if any at all.

OWC - Video Contest - 9/28/2016

Regional Weather Discussion ...

Friday will feature early fog then sunny skies in northern areas. Partial am sun in southern areas will give way to increasing clouds. A couple showers are possible in the afternoon in areas south of Concord. Highs will run in the low 60s in many spots(a bit milder far north and west).

Showers and drizzle will be likely Friday Night into Saturday along with cooler conditions. Highs will only run in the mid 50s for many on Saturday.

Sunday will likely feature lots of clouds, limited sun, and a couple of passing showers. More of the same can be expected early next week before it clears out by later Tuesday into Wednesday.
