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:

10/22 -  6:45 PM: Increasing clouds tonight and not as cold. Clouds will be on the increase as a system hits the Gulf of Maine and intensifies on Tuesday. This will be rain here in the south by afternoon and snow north and in the mountains to the west. Heavy snow up in the Canadian Maritimes. 3" to 7" across the Maine mountains and far northern NH. Rain ends later Tuesday night (may affect the World Series in Boston) with slow clearing Wednesday. We'll be turning much colder after this storm departs. Still watching---I see the potential for our first Nor'Easter of the season possible later next weekend. If this does take shape, it would be a rain event for most here in the south...Stay tuned.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
Weak low pressure will slowly track southeast from western
Quebec Monday night and Tuesday, intensifying along the Maine
coast Tuesday night and then moving into the maritimes
Wednesday. This will bring a period of snow in the mountains and
rain or snow elsewhere Tuesday into Wednesday morning. High
pressure will slowly build in from the west late Wednesday
through Friday. Low pressure passes through the Gulf of Maine
Saturday with another weaker system on Sunday.

SYNOPSIS...MA
High pressure will bring dry and unseasonably chilly weather
tonight. Low pressure will bring a few showers to the region on
Tuesday, particularly across northern Massachusetts where a
period of steadier showers are possible. Some showers linger
into Wednesday as low pressure pushes across the Canadian
Maritimes. High pressure moves across through late this week,
bringing the coldest air of the season late this week lingering
into early next weekend. Strong low pressure may work up the
eastern seaboard, with rain possible this weekend and a mix of
snow possible at the onset inland.

10/22 -  6:33 AM: Pretty chilly outside this morning. A sunny day ahead with much less wind. Highs will be in the upper 40s to around 50°. Clouds will be on the increase tonight as weak low pressure shifts east and then blows up over the Gulf of Maine. This system will bring showers to the region during the day on Tuesday, ending Tuesday night. Perhaps snow/mix in the mountains. Right now the rest of the week looks dry and sunny, but cold. I see the potential for our first Nor'Easter of the season possible later next weekend. If this does take shape, it would be a rain event for most here in the south...Stay tuned.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
High pressure will move across the region today as a weak warm
front lifts into western New England. Weak low pressure will
slowly track southeast from western Quebec Monday night and
Tuesday, intensifying along the Maine coast Tuesday night and
then moving into the maritimes Wednesday. This could bring a
period of rain or snow Tuesday into Tuesday night. High pressure
will slowly build in from the west late Wednesday through
Friday.

SYNOPSIS...MA
High pressure will bring dry and unseasonably chilly weather today
and tonight. Low pressure will bring a few showers to the region on
Tuesday...particularly across northern Massachusetts where a period
of steadier showers are possible. Turning colder Wednesday into
Thursday with the chance of rain / snow showers. Coldest air of
the season around Friday morning lingering into Saturday ahead
of a Nor`Easter around Sunday.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/...

*/ Highlights...

- Rain / snow shower activity Tuesday night through Thursday
- Coldest air of the season Friday morning
- Lingering cold air Saturday
- Setup prior to a Nor`Easter around Sunday, however uncertainty

- 2018/2019 - The year of decisions continue regarding the continuation of RichLefko.com. I need sponsors!
RichLefko.com needs two new annual sponsors to stay on the web and deliver the weather alerts you need, when you need them. E-mail alerts add up to one of the largest costs at RichLefko.com. I also need to update this website to better handle cell phones, and other portable electronics. I am willing to put in the time and effort, but I need some help to osffset the cost of e-mail, web hosting, and software.
In order to accomplish this I need two additional sponsors to add to the couple I already have. In the past I had several sponsors who have now retired their businesses.
Contact me if you, or someone you know, has a small business and would like to support the continuation of RichLefko.com. It isn't expensive. I do accept donations as well.

Regional Weather Discussion ...

MANCHESTER, N.H. —
It will be a dry and chilly Monday with high temperatures mainly in the 40s. A mix of sun and clouds will transition to increasing clouds Monday night as the next system approaches. It will not be as cold overnight, with lows in the 30s with a few mixed showers possibly by Tuesday morning.

As the clouds thicken Tuesday morning, some showers are possible in the afternoon and evening. Temperatures will go into the upper 40s to low 50s on Tuesday afternoon.

Mixed rain and snow showers are likely Tuesday night and Wednesday, particularly in central and northern New Hampshire. Temperatures will again be chilly with highs in the 30s and 40s as the wind starts to pick up again.

Expect snow showers in the mountains and North country on Thursday where a couple of inches could fall. Otherwise, it will be sunny and cold with highs in the 40s to wrap up the workweek.

These "discussions" are from the NWS, or WMUR Manchester NH, or me.
