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:

1/28 - 5:49 PM: High pressure builds into the region tonight. With clear skies and a fresh snowpack, lows will dip into the low single numbers and below zero every place north of PB. Sunny on Thursday with high in the upper 20s with some lows 30s south. Clouds increase later Thursday as low pressure drops down from the Midwest and tracks across the region. When it hits the ocean Thursday night it will intensify and as it does so, light snow will develop. I have posted the most recent Snowfall Estimate Maps. Right now it looks like those coastal areas impacted the most during the blizzard may get the most snow out of this. Looking at 1" to 2" here in PB, but that could be 2" to 5" as you go west. Winter Weather Advisories are expected by morning. Stay tuned.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
HIGH PRESSURE WILL ENTER THE REGION TONIGHT AND THURSDAY. ANOTHER
STORM SYSTEM WILL LIKELY BRING SNOWFALL TO THE AREA LATE THURSDAY
NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT. HIGH PRESSURE WILL FOLLOW OVER THE
WEEKEND...WITH ANOTHER SYSTEM MOVING SOUTH OF NEW ENGLAND ON
MONDAY. HIGH PRESSURE WILL FOLLOW MIDWEEK.

SYNOPSIS...MA
HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE EASTERN GREAT LAKES WILL BUILD OVER NEW
ENGLAND TONIGHT AND THURSDAY...THEN MOVE EAST THURSDAY EVENING.
THIS WILL BRING VERY COLD AIR FOR TONIGHT AND THEN MODERATION ON
THURSDAY. AN ALBERTA CLIPPER WILL MOVE EAST FROM THE PLAINS AND
BRING A CHANCE OF SNOW THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT. VERY
COLD CONDITIONS LINGER THROUGH THE WEEKEND. ANOTHER STORM MAY
BRING SNOW TO THE REGION SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY.

1/28 - 7:29 AM: Storm pulls away this morning. Gusty NW winds and cold air coming down from the north will keep things cold. Increasing sunshine with skies clearing out tonight. Lows will be in the single numbers to around zero. Thursday looks cold, dry, and mostly sunny. We are in the storm track as the next system arrives after midnight Thursday. This storm will bring light snow to the region with the heaviest amounts in areas that already have over 25" on the ground. As the system hits the coast it will intensify and perhaps 2" to 4" to 6" in coastal areas with less as you go west. I have posted a map of MA above, waiting for the NH map to appear. That storm moves out Friday night. Next storm, more significant, arrive Sunday/Monday. Stay tuned.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
AN INTENSE OCEAN STORM WILL SLOWLY MOVE EAST INTO THE CANADIAN
MARITIMES THIS MORNING. HIGH PRESSURE WILL THEN FOLLOW FOR LATE
TODAY INTO THURSDAY. ANOTHER STORM SYSTEM WILL LIKELY BRING A
GENERAL SNOWFALL TO THE AREA LATE THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY
NIGHT. HIGH PRESSURE WILL FOLLOW OVER THE WEEKEND...WITH ANOTHER
STORM HEADING TOWARDS NEW ENGLAND ON MONDAY.

TYPE SYSTEM MOVES OUT OF THE PLAINS STATES...BRINGING ANOTHER
CHANCE FOR SNOW THURSDAY NIGHT INTO FRIDAY NIGHT. DRY...BLUSTERY
AND FRIGID CONDITIONS MOVE IN FOR THIS WEEKEND. A THIRD STORM MAY
AFFECT THE REGION SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY.

1/27 - 4:44 PM: The storm is off the Cape at this hour and even has an eyewall like a hurricane. Very intense. The storm, and the snow, will wind down tonight. Blizzard and Winter STorm warnings will begin to expire, but at different times. In MA around 8PM, while in eastern NH around 4AM Wed, as well as winter storm warnings in NH. IN Keene, the winter storm warning was cancelled and replaced with a winter weather advisory. Check your area for details. Many locations to our south and east are reporting over 20" of snowfall, while here in PB we look closer to 10" though hard to tell with all of the blowing and drifting. Snow continues to push inland on radar (above) as it turns and heads for the Gulf of Maine. As the snow winds it may still drift onto highways so beware if you venture out in the morning. Partly sunny, breezy and cold Wednesday. Next storm is a clipper system for Thursday night and Friday. Light snow is expected. Then another system may impact us by next Monday. See the graphics in the boxes above. Stay tuned.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
AN INTENSE NOREASTER WILL THE LOW WILL SLOWLY MOVE EAST THROUGH
THE GULF OF MAINE TONIGHT. HIGH PRESSURE WILL THEN FOLLOW FOR
WEDNESDAY AND EARLY THURSDAY. ANOTHER STORM SYSTEM WILL LIKELY

Regional Weather Discussion ...

The major Nor'easter, that dropped over 2 feet of snow in parts of southern NH, will slowly pull away this morning. Even though it quiets down today, the pattern remains active at least for the next week or two!

We'll see some lingering flurries in places early this morning (no additional accumulation) as morning clouds gives way to some sunny breaks later this morning, then clearing skies this afternoon. It will be breezy at times and will result in more blowing snow in open areas.

Thursday will start off very cold (sub-zero in many spots from Concord north and west) then the sun will warm temps back to the late January average (mid 20s to 30).

Clouds will race in Thursday Night as the next system approaches. Snow is likely very late Thursday Night into Friday before it clears out for most of the weekend. At first glance 2-4 inches of snow looks likely for Friday. Stay tuned to updates as we fine tune that part of the forecast.

It looks blustery and very cold Saturday with lighter winds and chilly temps with some partial sun on Sunday.

Another storm is possible late Sunday Night into Monday!
