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:

A personal note: I will be taking some vacation time next week. There WILL be site updates, but not on the regular schedule. Also, my weather instruments will be down for their annual maintenance. (Vacation fun) There will be NO Thursday Weekend Outlook E-Mail blast on 8/6.

7/31 -  5:04 PM: Quiet weather invades the region for the weekend. A weak trough will cross on Saturday and that will produce some showers and storms but the best chance will be in northern and western areas of VT, NH, and Maine, as well as coastal CT, MA, and RI. The rest of us will see sunny skies and warm temps. At least that is how it looks at the moment. Check back in the morning. Otherwise Sunday looks warm and sunny with the next chance of any showers later Monday night or Tuesday. After these showers a pattern change for midweek and cooler temps. Long, long, range charts look very wet by next weekend.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
A WEAK COLD FRONT WILL CROSS THE AREA SATURDAY...BRINGING ANOTHER
THREAT FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS. BEHIND THIS FRONT WE WILL
SEE ANOTHER DROP IN TEMPERATURES AND HUMIDITY. WEAK LOW PRESSURE

7/31 -  6:47 AM: That was our first heat wave in two years. High pressure will build in from the west today under sunny skies. Temps will bounce back into the low to mid 80s today with humidity levels noticeably lower, so it will be much more comfortable. The weekend looks mostly dry and sunny. Just a chance of an isolated T-Storm Saturday afternoon in western areas. Otherwise mostly sunny skies with highs in the 80s for both days. Next chance of any weather will be Tuesday and that will shift our pattern from mid week onward to a cooler flow with afternoon showers chances.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD IN FROM THE WEST TODAY...PROVIDING A DAY
WITH VERY LITTLE CHANCE OF SHOWERS OR THUNDERSTORMS FOR A CHANGE.
IT WILL STILL BE WARM TODAY...BUT NOTICEABLY LESS HUMID THAN
PREVIOUS DAYS. A WEAK COLD FRONT WILL CROSS THE AREA

OWC "Back to School" Deals - 7/30/2015

Regional Weather Discussion ...

Our first official heat wave in two years is by the boards...but that doesn't mean it won't still be warm through the weekend.

Post cool front we will now watch our dew points gradually fall through the day today...so while temperatures will be in the 80s most places this afternoon (with sunshine,) it will feel a lot more comfortable. this will set us up well as we start the weekend.

Our next best chance of some afternoon thunderstorms will be Saturday, however most of the day will be dry and sunny. Highs (again) in the 80s, even at the beaches. Sunday will feature almost full sunshine with (yet again) highs in the 80s.

Have a great weekend!
