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:

This begins Friday 8/23: To my many followers: Please note. I will be migrating this site, and all of my data, to a new Mac computer over the next several weeks. This is going to be a long and slow process since I have been using my trusty Mac Pro for the last ten years to give you uninterrupted weather forecasts. Moving is not going to be easy. My weather instrument feed will be shut down during this period. Once that is complete, I will go back to working on the updated site, which I know you will all love. So please bear with me.... Rich

8/23 -  6:35 AM:  We still have showers moving across the southern MA and CT coasts this morning. That is why we have the clouds here in southern NH. Those will exit off the coast with building high pressure from the north moving in for the weekend and beyond. Expect a sunny and dry weekend with seasonable temps in the mid and lower 70s. Some cool nights with lows around the 50 degree mark away from the coasts. Sunday looks cooler than Saturday. A system tracking along the coast early next week looks like it will be too far east to affect the region. We'll keep watching. The tropics are heating up. Otherwise, dry and sunny weather will last into Tuesday of next week. After that we will probably turn more humid as we head for the Labor Day weekend.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
High pressure will dominate the weather pattern this weekend for
pleasant weather and comfortable humidity levels. An area of
Low pressure off the East Coast will track south off Cape Cod
early next week that will likely be too far offshore to impact
the area. A front will approach the area from the west midweek
bringing an increase in temperatures and humidity and a chance
for precipitation.

SYNOPSIS...MA
A cold front along the South Coast this morning moves well
offshore during the day. Showers along the front will move
offshore with the front. Drier less humid air moves in from the
northwest. High pressure will linger across central and eastern
Canada through this weekend into early next week. Cool
temperatures both Sunday and Monday with the onshore wind flow
in place, along with spotty light rain or showers especially
near the coast. As the high slowly pushes east, temperatures
will moderate by mid week, but there could be a threat for
showers as a cold front approaches.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/...

Highlights...

* Expect much cooler than normal temperatures Sunday and Monday
especially along the east coast
* Onshore winds will bring spotty light rain or showers at
times into mid week
* Temperatures return to near normal levels around mid week
* Another chance for showers Wednesday into Thursday

8/22 -  6:15 PM:  I'm going to go out on a limb and predict no showers from this passing cold front. The majority of shower activity is occurring to our south along the CT and MA coastlines. I guess there is a slight chance, but increasing clouds tonight with lows around 60°. A cloudy start to Friday with skies turning sunny, cooler temps in the 70s, and much lower humidity. Mostly clear and cool Friday night and into the weekend. More on that in this evenings every Thursday night "Weekend Outlook" e-mail. Expect that tonight. Sign up below.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
High pressure will dominate the weather pattern this weekend for
pleasant weather and comfortable humidity levels. An area of
Low pressure off the East Coast will track south off Cape Cod
early next week that will likely be too far offshore to impact
the area. A front will approach the area from the west midweek
bringing an increase in temperatures and humidity and a chance
for precipitation.

SYNOPSIS...MA
A cold front moving across the region this evening will stall
just off the south coast as a wave of low pressure tracks along
the front. Scattered showers with embedded thunder possible at
times may impact much of CT/RI and along/south of the Mass Pike
tonight into Friday morning. The front moves farther offshore
Friday afternoon with dry and less humid weather to follow.
Canadian high pressure then provides dry weather Saturday with a
mild afternoon and cool night. Onshore flow Sunday will yield
cooler conditions along with a few showers possible. Cool
weather likely lingers into early next week.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/...

4 PM update ...

Highlights...

* Mild temperatures and dry conditions Saturday
* Cooler than normal temperatures expected Saturday through Monday,
with spotty light rain or showers at times
* Temperatures moderate by mid week, with another chance for showers
Tuesday through Thursday

Regional Weather Discussion ...

Manchester NH —

The summer heat and humidity take a break for the next few days as some MUCH less humid air arrives, along with cooler air, too.

Any early clouds give way to sunshine on Friday. It will be a bit breezy and much less humid. Highs will be in the low 70s north to around 80 far south.

Saturday will feature sun and some fair weather clouds. A refreshing northwest breeze will kick up and it will feel pleasantly mild with highs in the 70s. Cooler at the coast.

Another dry and sunny day on Sunday with more September-like highs in the upper 60s north to the low 70s south. It will be one of the first cool nights Sunday night as many of us dip into the 40s.

Monday will likely be the coolest day of the stretch with highs right around 70. Still sunny!

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