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:

12/05 -  6:39 PM: Some flurries around tonight but the snow has moved east. Expect melting snow to freeze tonight leaving roads, bridges, overpasses, and walkways slick. I recorded 2" of snow here in PB. Skies should clear out tonight with lows in the upper 20s. A sunny day on Tuesday with highs in the upper 30s and low 40s. Another weak system begins to approach Tuesday night as clouds increase. Light snow and snow flurries will arrive in time for the Wednesday morning commute. Not as much moisture associated with this system, so not expecting more than an inch but roads will become slick once again. Any snow showers turn to rain showers by afternoon on Wednesday. Mostly cloudy Wednesday night and Thursday with a strong Polar front crossing the region on Friday bringing Arctic air and the coldest temps of the season for Saturday.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
High pressure moves in from the west tonight and crosses through
the area on Tuesday. A weakening trough of low pressure approaches
from the west Wednesday morning with more light snow possible. A
cold front arrives from the northwest on Friday ushering in some
of the coldest air of the season so far for this weekend.

SYNOPSIS...MA
Low pressure off the mid Atlantic coast may bring some mixed light
rain and/or snow into Southern New England Tuesday night into early
Wednesday. A cold front crosses the region late Thursday or Thursday
evening with another cold front Friday. This will be followed by
blustery and unseasonably cold conditions Friday night into
Saturday. Low pressure may bring some snow or rain Sunday night into
Monday.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY/...
Highlights...

* Mixed snow/rain lingering into Wed morning
* Blustery and unseasonably cold Fri night into Sat
* Some snow/rain possible Sun night into Mon

12/05 -  7:09 AM: Snow was falling across much of the region this morning. A general 1" to 2" is expected. There are several Hazardous Weather Statements for slippery roads. Leave yourself extra time. The snow ends around noon in Nashua and a bit later as you go east. A dry commute home is anticipated. Sunny and dry weather on Tuesday but by later Tuesday night another system may bring more light snow or mixed precipitation. Stay tuned..

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
A weak low pressure system will bring some light snow to the
region on today. High pressure will settle in for Tuesday. Low
pressure may affect the region with more light rain or snow
Thursday with colder air following for Friday and over the
weekend.

SYNOPSIS...MA
Brief period of light to moderate snow during the morning commute
will result in snow covered roads especially across CT...western
and central MA. Steadiest snow occurs early this morning then mix
and/or change over to rain toward midday from south to north. Then
partial clearing late in the day. Dry Monday night into Tuesday
beneath high pressure. Low pressure off the mid Atlantic coast
may bring some mixed light rain and/or snow into Southern New
England Tuesday night into Wednesday. A polar front crosses the
region late Thursday or Thursday night, with the chance for rain
and snow showers. Very windy and cold conditions are then expected
for Friday and next Saturday.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/...
Highlights...

* Mixed precipitation possible Tuesday night into Wednesday
morning
* Very strong front crosses the region Thu or Thu night
* Windy and cold into next weekend, with strong gales over the waters

OWC - Deals - 12/03/2016

Regional Weather Discussion ...

Monday will be a classic example of timing and how you don’t need much on area roadways to cause a problem. We aren’t expecting a major storm, or huge snowfall amounts, but with temperatures starting the day in the 20s, the light snow that develops this morning will make for slick conditions.

Light snow moving in early this morning will be around through early to mid afternoon. Roads will be toughest this morning, so factor in some extra time and patience. The roads should gradually improve as the light snow tapers off this afternoon. Highs will be in the 30s.

As we drop into the 20s tonight, any untreated surfaces could turn slick overnight.

We’ll be in the 30s to lower 40s for Tuesday (with partial sunshine) and Wednesday when we could see some mixed showers.

Much colder air will start to ebb in Thursday with a building northwesterly breeze. That colder air (highs in the 20s to lower 30) will be around into next weekend.

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