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.

Bright sunshine expected through Wednesday with temps gradually warming as the cold high pressure shifts offshore after midweek, and milder air begins to ride north once again. Dry weather is expected into the upcoming weekend. Ophelia has transitioned into a Post Tropical Cyclone, but will still nail Ireland with very strong winds. I am watching another low in the Caribbean as this season begins to finally wind down. See the maps above in the tropical section.

Regional Weather Discussion ...

A cool next 36 hours (think autumn) turns back into milder air for the rest of the week, and likely next weekend too!

For some it was the first frost of the season this morning, but with sunshine and a lighter breeze we'll go into the mid to upper 50s this afternoon. Another chilly night tonight (lows for most in the 30s,) before we start yet another warming trend Wednesday.

With almost nothing but sunshine through the weekend, we'll see temps in the 60s to near 70° Wednesday and in the 60s to lower 70s through the weekend…lows in the 40s each night.

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