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.

8/28 - 6:39 AM: Cold front moves offshore this morning with breezy conditions following. Clearing skies behind the front with much cooler and drier air streaming into the region from the north. Hurricane Cristobal passes about 375 miles offshore today with rip tides and high surf felt along the coast. We'll see some midday clouds appear as the cold air aloft heats up. As high pressure builds in tonight the winds will relax and with clear skies the temps will drop to around 50° with some 40s in the valleys. Friday will be sunny and seasonably cool day with highs in the low to mid 70s. The Labor Weekend looks warm and humid with some showers and storms possible. I will detail the Labor Day holiday forecast in tonights e-mail blast. Join the mal list and use the link below.

8/27 - 5:24 PM: I see a few showers in central and western areas on radar this evening. Not much convective potential but I can't rule out a thunderstorm completely. Slower moving front will mean a chance of showers later tonight. Post frontal air mass overspreads the region Thursday morning. This will bring much less humid air into the region and it will be much cooler in the mid 70s. A cool Thursday night with lows dipping to 50° in some spots. A sunny and cool day on Friday with highs in the low to mid 70s. Rip currents will be a concern along area beaches as Hurricane Cristobal tracks east missing Bermuda on its way out. High surf warnings are posted on south facing beaches. I will have the first look Labor Day weekend forecast up in the morning.
SYNOPSIS...
A COLD FRONT APPROACHING THE REGION WILL TRIGGER A FEW SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS THIS EVENING AND OVERNIGHT. THE FRONT MOVES OFFSHORE

Regional Weather Discussion ...

A cold front crossing the state last night has now switched the weather pattern to more comfortable conditions for the next few days, more changes await for the holiday weekend.

More refreshing conditions will arrive today as northwest winds get going 10-20+ mph. With partial sunshine, highs will be back into the 70s this afternoon. Highs in the 70s are also expected for Friday with full sunshine and lighter winds.

As for the weekend...it looks like the warm and humid weather makes another run at us with some hazy sun each day along with a few scattered showers and thunderstorms (best chances right now look to be later Sunday and again on Labor Day). We will fine tune that all important holiday weekend forecast as we get closer...so stay tuned!

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