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.

A cold front will move east out of the Great Lakes today and cross New England later this afternoon. The winds will pick up once again and colder temperatures are in store for us tonight through Friday night. Fridays highs won't reach 30° here in PB. A warm up looks likely later this weekend.

NEW OWC Sale going on now - 11/14/14

Regional Weather Discussion ...

oday is day 9 of temperatures below the mid November average...after a cold start to the weekend it will turn milder.

Today will be a blustery, cold day with clouds and snow showers in the mountains and mostly to partly sunny skies elsewhere. Highs in the 20s to lower 30s will feel much colder than that because of a WNW wind 10-20+ mph through the afternoon.

After a cold start to Saturday (lows between 5-22°,_ temps will climb slightly higher by afternoon (30-38°) along with mostly sunny skies south and partly sunny skies north.

Temps finally climb back to average by Sunday. A brief mixed shower is possible early morning, otherwise a blend of clouds and partial sun is expected. Highs just about statewide will be in the 40s!

Even warmer air takes over on Monday with rain likely, especially in the morning. We could see some clearing during the afternoon as temps jump well into the 50s!

Have a great weekend!
