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:

8/25 -  7:53 AM: On this date in 2005 Hurricane Katrina came ashore. Check out today's weather history above.
Warmer today, and more humid as high pressure shifts to our south and brings air into the region from the southeast. Clouds will be on the increase later today as a cold front approaches form the west. This system may bring some showers to the region tonight into Friday morning but the guidance is rather unclear on the precip forecast. We look sunny and dry into the weekend. The every Thursday night evening weather blast will be in your mailbox this evening.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
High pressure will remain anchored well to our south today
allowing for warm southwesterly flow to continue. A few
thunderstorms may move into New Hampshire late this afternoon but
most of the region will remain dry. A cold front will approach
late tonight and Friday with more chances for showers and
thunderstorms during this time. High pressure will return for
Friday night and Saturday with a drier air mass. Showers and
thunderstorms may return early next week as another frontal system
approaches.

SYNOPSIS...MA
High pressure moves farther offshore today. Warm and more humid
conditions return ahead of a cold front Friday, which may lead to
a few showers or thunderstorms. Large high pressure will crest
across New England this weekend, bringing dry and somewhat less
humid conditions. Another front will slowly move across the region
late Sunday night and Monday with a chance for showers and
thunderstorms. Conditions for Tuesday and Wednesday look dry for
now.

8/24 -  5:26 PM: Milder tonight with lows in the 60s. Warmer on Thursday, and more humid. Clouds will be on the increase as a cold front begins to approach form the west. This front doesn't arrive until Thursday night and moves across the region with a few showers on Friday. There is still expected to be some sun on Friday, so not a wash out by any stretch. We are watching "Invest-99L" which is NHC "speak" for a probably tropical system forming somewhere in the Caribbean soon. This system may bring rain to New England, and who knows what else. Stay tuned.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
High pressure will hold off the east coast tonight and Thursday as
a cold front approaches from the west. The cold front will slowly
cross the region Thursday night and Friday. High pressure will
build in from the west Friday night and Saturday. High pressure
will shift off to the east on Sunday as a cold front moves in from
the west. The front will cross the region sunday night followed by
high pressure on Monday.

SYNOPSIS...MA
High pressure moves offshore through Thursday. Warm but more
humid conditions return ahead of a cold front late Thursday into
Friday which may lead to a few showers or thunderstorms. Another
high will bring dry and somewhat less humid weather this weekend
followed by a chance of showers and thunderstorms Monday. The
forecast remains uncertain beyond Monday, but there`s the chance
for wet-weather later in the week and possibly on into Labor Day
Weekend. This as we continue to monitor the latest with Invest-
99L.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
*/ Highlights...

- Shower and thunderstorm chances for Friday and Monday
- A cool, comfortable weekend in-between
- Monitoring Invest 99L, low confidence forecast into next week

OWC Back to School Sales - 8/25/2016

Regional Weather Discussion ...

The comfortable start to the week is now long gone...warmer temps started yesterday and today it is the humidity.

We'll start the day with sunshine as temps jump quickly...highs today will range from 82-90°. With a system approaching from the west, we'll see an increase in clouds this afternoon and a few passing t-showers possible...but not everywhere and certainly a lot of dry hours to the day.

Tonight into Friday will be quite humid with a shower or thunderstorm possible at just about any time. Otherwise, expect partly sunny skies on Friday with highs still in the 80s to near 90. We really need rain, but these showers likely won't help all that much, just too scattered.

At this point, the upcoming weekend is looking very nice with sunshine and pleasant temps (upper 70s to low 80s). Humidity shouldn't be too high.

The next chance for a few scattered showers appears right now to be later Sunday night into Monday morning... after that, another dry spell is possible.

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