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:

Taking a few days off. There will be updates but they will be off schedule the rest of the week.

2/27 - 6:48 PM: Skies will remain clear tonight so temps will nosedive into the single numbers near zero. Light winds will keep wind chill readings below zero. A clear and dry day on Saturday, still cold with highs in the mid 20s and wind chill reading below zero. By Saturday night warmer air from the approaching frontal system will begin to arrive and temps will drop to the low single numbers early, then begin to rise overnight. I think we remain dry during most of the day Sunday with snow arriving by evening. I may have some detailed estimates on who gets what tomorrow. So stay tuned.

2/27 - 9:32 AM: Normal high temps for the last week of February are in the low 40s. We'll see highs in the low 20s to end, what was, a very tough month for New England. Mostly sunny through early Sunday with unseasonably cold highs and very cold lows. Tonight lows will range from the low single numbers to -10° in the normally colder areas like Keene NH. Another cold, but sunny and dry day expected on Saturday, similar to today but not as cold at night. Increasing clouds on Sunday as milder air works into the region aloft. An overrunning situation with snow will arrive later in the day. Timing is not clear yet and snow amounts, though advisory level snowfall is expected. So stay tuned.

Regional Weather Discussion ...

The last of the really chilly afternoons for awhile today, but we'll still have some colder nights to contend with over the weekend. After a nice weekend, there will be two systems we're tracking next week.

It will be a bright Friday (after some early clouds in places) with highs in the teens (north) to mid 20s (south.) Winds out of the northwest won't be as gusty today. We'll essentially have the same forecast for Saturday after a very cold start (-25 to 8°)

Sunday will be milder (24-32°) before clouds start to increase in the afternoon as the next system approaches. At this point, there could be a few inches of snow later Sunday night into Monday morning.

Any light snow early Monday should give way to a bit of a break Monday PM and Tuesday. There will be another system we'll be tracking for Wednesday of next week. That one likely brings milder air with it, so at this point there could be a messy mix and rain. We will keep you up to date on air and online as we get closer!

Hope you have a great weekend!
