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.

Winter is coming and you WANT to be on this list.

10/19 - 4:29 PM: Colder air is rushing into the region this evening on gusty NW winds. Those winds will die down tonight and allow good radiational cooling. Freeze and Frost Warnings are up for tonight mostly south. Once you've had a freeze, then you don't get warnings any longer, so no advisories for central and western NH. Lows tonight will be in the mid and upper 20s here in S NH, low 30s as you go south. Frost advisory along the immediate coast. Temps will bounce back on Monday into the mid and upper 50s, then a slow moving, long duration coastal storm takes over for much of the week ahead.

10/18 - 5:41 PM: We've had a few showers/sprinkles here in PB this afternoon. Overcast skies across the region but we had some sunny breaks earlier. At this hour we can see a line of showers working across central MA heading east on radar. Low pressure wave with cold front behind it, swings into the region tonight. Snow showers are possible across the Berkshires tonight as colder air rushes into the region. A chance of showers continues through Sunday morning with a thunderstorm or two in the mix. A blustery, cold day on Sunday. After any morning showers end some sunshine appears by afternoon with partly cloudy skies Sunday night. Sunday night will be the coldest night this season thus far with lows in the mid to upper 20s inland to the low 30s along the coast. The NWS has issued a FREEZE WATCH for areas that are still in the growing season. This Watch affects primarily MA. This should effectively kill the growing season. Mid Week long duration coastal storm is likely. Stay tuned.

NEW OWC Specials begin - 10/11/14

Regional Weather Discussion ...

There will be big changes in our temperatures beginning today. Clouds will be tough to give way this morning, but sun should gradually break out. It will be breezy and much colder (highs only in the low/mid 40s north to low 50s south!)

A cold one ahead for tonight... expect temps to dip into the 20s to low 30s statewide. Brrrr!!!!

Monday will start off very cold, but partly sunny skies will turn things pleasantly cool.

The next system will be an early season Nor'easter (not all that strong but very slow moving), that will bring rain our way. There are strong indications that this system may stick around from Tuesday right into part of Friday as it stalls overhead.

Have a great rest of the weekend!
