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:

Note: I will be taking a few days off from work this week, so morning updates will be later than usual.

7/05 -  6:07 PM: Showers have been falling across northern Maine and the mid coast area today. Here in the south, we had mostly sunny skies and warm temps. Not as cool tonight with lows in the low 60s. High pressure builds in for Monday into Tuesday morning. Expect a warm day with temps in the mid and upper 80s with some 90s east and south. Since the air will flow up from the south, a bit more humidity is likely. We'll have a few wave of low pressure cross the region this week as the flow turn zonal, from west to east. The best chance will be Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday with some thunderstorms, some of which could be strong. Drier and mild to warm late week.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
WEAK LOW PRESSURE MOVES INTO THE CANADIAN MARITIMES TONIGHT. HIGH
PRESSURE BRINGS DRY WEATHER AND GRADUALLY WARMING CONDITIONS
MONDAY INTO TUESDAY. ANOTHER PASSING TROUGH AND COLD FRONT WILL
BRING A CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS MIDWEEK. HIGH PRESSURE
FOLLOWS FOR LATE THURSDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.

SYNOPSIS...MA

INTO TUESDAY MORNING. A SERIES OF FRONTS WILL BRING SCATTERED
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY. DRY WEATHER

OF NEW ENGLAND MAY TRIGGER A FEW SHOWERS FROM TIME TO TIME.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/...

HIGHLIGHTS...

* SHOWERS/STORMS TUE AND WED
* HIGH UNCERTAINTY LATER IN WEEK BUT MAINLY DRY

7/05 -  8:26 AM: The weather we should of had yesterday rolls in today. High pressure building in from the plains will bring lost of sunshine and warmer temps today and Monday. Highs today will be range for the low to mid 80s. Not as cool tonight with lows in the low 60s. That will set the stage for a very warm Monday with highs in the upper 80s and perhaps some low 90s east and south. Dry weather prevails into Tuesday when we'll have a chance for an afternoon thunderstorms. Cooler by Tuesday, in the low to mid 80s.
Elsewhere Today: Severe weather will be possible Sunday across much of the northern Plains. The Storm Prediction Center has highlighted Slight and Moderate Risks mainly for large hail and damaging winds, but an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out. Across the Upper Midwest, heavy rainfall could lead to isolated flash flooding with 1 to 2 inches of rainfall possible over the next 24 hours.

7/04 -  5:34 PM: Well, so much for the blown forecast on this 4th. Low pressure is rapidly shifting eastward at this hour as showers have ended across much of the region, or will end shortly. We have some bright spots in the sky already here in PB but temps are cool. Skies will partially clear early this evening, and with the rain over, we should see improving conditions. Any fireworks shows should be fine, though the grass will be wet. Lows tonight dropping into the mid 50s. Abundant sunshine and warmer temps on Sunday will allows us to salvage part of the holiday weekend. Highs in the low to mid 80s across the area under sunny skies. Mild Sunday night in the low 60s, with a very warm to hot Monday on tap. I will be taking a few days off from work this week, so morning updates will be later than usual.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
LOW PRESSURE TO OUR SOUTH SHIFTS EASTWARD THIS EVENING...BRINGING
AN END TO THE SHOWERS. WEAK LOW PRESSURE WILL CROSS JUST NORTH OF

OWC 4th of July Sales - 7/1/2015

Regional Weather Discussion ...

After yesterday's much worse than expected weather, we're back on track today! (*see more at the bottom about that!) We're starting off with patchy fog, locally quite dense, which burns off fairly early this morning.

Today we're back to the sunshine! Partly to mostly sunny with warmer temperatures, in the upper 70s along the coast to mid 80s inland. There is a small chance of isolated scattered showers up north of the notches in a few spots.

Monday will see lots of sunshine, but will also be one of the hotter days we've seen in a while. Temperatures will approach 90 in some southern communities. You'll also notice the humidity creeping up. Tuesday is another warm one, with showers and thunderstorms possible in the afternoon and evening hours, and quite humid.

There will be more scattered showers and thunderstorms on Wednesday, before we clear out for the rest of the week.

------->>>>

-On a personal note, just to go back to Saturday's weather one more time... I'm truly sorry if the (botched) forecast caused problems with your outdoor plans. These types of busted forecasts DO happen every once in a while.. but when it happens on the 4th of July, that is extremely frustrating.

Why didn't anyone get it right? The reason (not an excuse, but simply an explanation) is that there wasn't a single computer model that predicted that area of rain coming so far north. 98% of the time, computer models do what humans can't, they perform billions of math calculations to predict what our atmosphere will do. It's the reason we can warn you of the possibility of a storm 5 days away, warn you of the chance for afternoon thunderstorms, or tell you it a big cool down or warm up is imminent.. but when you live by them you can also die by them. Despite the fact that there was rain on the radar heading in our direction, every single computer model showed that rain breaking up.. which it didn't.

Again, I apologize for whatever problems the rainfall may have caused you.. at least it wasn't snow! :)
