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.

Highs today in the upper 30s and low 40s with lows in the mid and upper 20s tonight. Colder on Friday with highs only in the low to mid 30s under mostly sunny skies.

12/17 - 5:43 PM: Temps will drop below freezing west of Nashua tonight. Snow showers will arrive probably after midnight. These look to be mostly confined to areas north of RT2. A dusting to perhaps an inch in the higher elevations, like Peterborough. Rain mixes in away from elevated areas. These come to an end around daybreak. Roads might be a bit slippery again tomorrow morning. Otherwise dry weather prevails the rest of the week. Highs in the upper 30s and low 40s Thursday, but only in the low to mid 30s on Friday. Lots of clouds around. Right now it looks like the storm expected later this weekend will just graze the region, but stay tuned. Another storm, much stronger, will track up the east coast Christmas Eve. Some models have this system tracking inland, to our west. If that happen expect a windswept heavy rain Christmas Eve. Final track is unknown at this time, so stay tuned.
SYNOPSIS...

OWC Holiday Sales - 12/10/14

Regional Weather Discussion ...

As our current weather system winds down today, colder air is pushing in and that will be around into the weekend.

A lot of lingering areas of light snow (2-4" of snow possible in the North Country through this evening) and mixed showers farther south (spotty light coating to an inch this morning) giving way to some sunshine this afternoon with a developing westerly breeze. Highs today will range from 32-44°.

Friday and Saturday look quiet enough...cooler and partly to mostly sunny skies with highs mostly in the 30s.

The snow threat for Sunday has diminished greatly.. what looked like the chance for some light snow for a while...now it just looks like the chance for flurries with a light onshore breeze.

The next large storm chance is Christmas eve. This is a week away, so the forecast will most likely change several times between now and then. As of today, the storm looks like it could feature heavy rain and strong winds. Stay tuned, as this is obviously a very important day.

These "discussions" come from the National Weather Service, WMUR TV Manchester NH, or me.
