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.

Hazardous Weather Outlook

THURSDAY THROUGH SUNDAY

GIVEN THE EXPECTED TRACK OF COASTAL LOW PRESSURE...THE RISK FOR
ACCUMULATING SNOW LATE SATURDAY INTO SUNDAY IS RATHER LOW...BUT
STILL CAN NOT BE RULED OUT.

THE BIGGEST CONCERN RIGHT NOW IS FOR A PERIOD OF STRONG WINDS LATE
SATURDAY AND ESPECIALLY SUNDAY. NORTH TO NORTHWEST WIND GUSTS OF
40 TO 50 MPH ARE POSSIBLE ACROSS MOST LOCATIONS...WITH PERHAPS UP
TO 60 MPH FOR A TIME ACROSS THE CAPE AND NANTUCKET. THIS WILL
LIKELY RESULT IN THE NEED FOR WIND HEADLINES. GIVEN MANY TREES
STILL HAVE AT LEAST SOME LEAVES ON THEM...THE RISK FOR TREE
DAMAGE AND ISOLATED POWER OUTAGES WILL BE ENHANCED.

FINALLY...THERE IS AT LEAST A LOW PROBABILITY FOR MINOR
COASTAL FLOODING AND BEACH EROSION DURING THE EARLY SUNDAY MORNING
HIGH TIDE ACROSS THE EASTERN MA COAST...AS WELL AS PORTIONS OF CAPE
COD AND NANTUCKET. SOME OF THE HOT SPOTS WOULD BE SALISBURY AND
PLUM ISLAND...HULL...SCITUATE AND PERHAPS SANDWICH HARBOR AND
NANTUCKET HARBOR.

Winter is coming and you WANT to be on this list.

10/30 - 6:46 AM: Dry conditions today as weak high pressure builds into the region. Colder air will filter down from the north. Highs today in the low to mid 50s. Partly cloudy and colder tonight with lows dropping into the mid 30s. Partly to mostly cloudy skies on Friday as low pressure digs into the Ohio Valley. Halloween looks mostly dry. Perhaps a spot shower. This low will transfer it energy to another storm system expected to form off the NJ coast by Friday night. The big question remains: Where exactly where that low form? Farther south, then New England gets a glancing blow from the storm. Anything closer pulls moisture into eastern areas, closer still, snow develops in the higher terrain north and west. Stay tuned as we try and figure this out. In any event the winds will howl on the backside of the storm with gusts 40 to 50MPH and up to 60 MPH Cape and the Islands. See the Hazardous Weather Outlook above and stay tuned. The Weekend Outlook E-mail will be out tonight and I will try to detail what might occur. Sign up below.
SYNOPSIS...
HIGH PRESSURE WILL BRING DRY AND SEASONABLE CONDITIONS THROUGH
THE END OF THE WORK WEEK. A COASTAL STORM WILL LIKELY DELIVER A
GLANCING BLOW TO THE REGION LATE SATURDAY INTO SUNDAY...BUT THE
OPPORTUNITY FOR A HIGHER IMPACT STILL EXISTS. MAINLY DRY WEATHER
FOLLOWS WITH A SIGNIFICANT WARMING TREND BY NEXT TUESDAY AND
WEDNESDAY.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
HIGHLIGHTS...

* GLANCING BLOW MOST LIKELY SAT/EARLY SUNDAY...BUT GREATER IMPACT
STILL POSSIBLE
* BIGGEST CONCERN IS STRONG WINDS THIS WEEKEND ESPECIALLY CAPE COD
* ACCUMULATING SNOW IS STILL POSSIBLE...BUT A LOW PROBABILITY
* MUCH MILDER WEATHER RETURNS BY NEXT TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY

10/29 - 6:06 PM: I was in SE MA this afternoon where it was sunny and in the low 70s. A cold front is approaching Peterborough at this hour. A line of showers extends from NYC into Maine. See the radar panel above. These showers will sweep across the region this evening. All milder air is pushed out to sea tonight with winds shifting to the NW. Cooler, but not real cold air...yet. Low around 40° tonight. Sunny with normal highs in the mid 50s Thursday. Right now majority of Friday looks dry, but can't rule out a shower or some drizzle along the coast as the next, stronger system, begins to affect the region. Storms is still up near the Arctic Circle so hard to forecast track with any certainty. At this time looks like two storms merge offshore, but too late to impact our region with snow. However, there is enough uncertainties to suggest a track with snow is still possible. In any event the winds will howl on the backside of the storm with gusts 40 to 50MPH and up to 60 MPH Cape and the Islands. See the Hazardous Weather Outlook above and stay tuned. The Weekend Outlook E-mail will be out tomorrow night when I will detail what might occur. Sign up below.
SYNOPSIS...
SHOWERS CONCLUDE BEHIND A COLD FRONT PUSHING OFFSHORE TONIGHT.

10/29 - 6:51 AM: Murky outside with dense fog in many areas. Expect overcast skies today as a cold front advances from the west. Showers and thunderstorms ahead of the front will bring rainfall to the the region today. Mild air ahead of the front will remain in place through the morning but colder air will begin to filter into the region from west to east. However, some eastern areas may hit the 70° mark before the cooler air arrives. This begins a trend of colder temperatures that will continue through the weekend. Skies will turn partly cloudy tonight and Thursday looks partly cloudy as well with near seasonably high temps in the low to mid 50s, but some 15° colder than today. An interesting scenario sets up for the weekend. See Weather Graphic 2 above. Much of what falls should be rain, but snow is in the mix at the moment. Stay tuned.
SYNOPSIS...
A COLD FRONT WILL PUSH ACROSS THE REGION TODAY...BRINGING
SCATTERED SHOWERS AND AN ISOLATED THUNDERSTORM OR TWO. THE FRONT
WILL PUSH OFFSHORE THIS EVENING. WEAK HIGH PRESSURE WILL MOVE
ACROSS THURSDAY AND FRIDAY WHICH WILL BRING DRY...SEASONABLE
CONDITIONS. A DEVELOPING COASTAL STORM OFF THE CAROLINAS WILL
PASS OFFSHORE SATURDAY NIGHT. HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS OVER THE
EASTERN USA EARLY NEXT WEEK.

NEW OWC Halloween Specials begin - 10/24/14

Regional Weather Discussion ...

After a mild start to the week, today marks the beginning of a cooling trend, that turns even colder (more like December) for the weekend.

A lot of clouds for northwestern parts of NH to start the day, while clear skies and fog greet you for the morning commute in southern areas. With partial sunshine and a light northwesterly breeze high temperatures will range from 45-58° this afternoon.

Friday will be dry and chilly with sunshine giving way to some clouds later in the day.

Friday night is looking like a treat for the trick or treaters with clouds and temps in the 40s. (there have certainly been much colder conditions in many prior years).

Now to the weekend...an extra chill will be in the air and there could even be a few flakes of snow later Saturday and/or Saturday Night. At this point, it looks like a big storm will form and stay mostly out to sea. If it is close enough, there is a chance of some rain/snow showers Saturday afternoon and/or evening. This expected track could still change a bit...so stay tuned! In any event, it looks blustery and very chilly on Sunday with wind chills in the 20s!
