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

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: Live Radar is NOT ACTIVE

4/24 - 6:43 AM: Clearing skies this morning, but chilly and blustery. Highs today in the low to mid 50s with winds gusting to 36 mph. Those winds will finally start to die down tonight. Lows tonight range from 30° here in PB to the mid 30s east and south. High pressure in control on Friday will cross the region with clouds increasing by Friday afternoon/evening. Low pressure system tracks to our south and will probably send some showers our way for Friday night. The Weekend Outlook doesn't look at that great and the models are not clear into early next week where a potential blocking pattern (See Box #5 below) may set up. I will be covering all of this in tonight's e-mail blast, now optimized for your digital devices. View on cell, tablet, or computer. Sign up below and stay tuned.
SYNOPSIS...
WINDY AND DRY CONDITIONS TODAY...THEN WINDS DIMINISH TONIGHT AND
FRIDAY AS HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS INTO THE REGION. LOW PRESSURE WILL
BRING RAIN FRIDAY NIGHT INTO SATURDAY...THEN MAINLY DRY AND
SEASONABLE CONDITIONS SUNDAY INTO MONDAY AS HIGH PRES RETURNS.

4/23 - 6:07 PM: Most of the shower activity has moved offshore as low pressure exits and heads for the Maritimes. Sustained winds gusting to 40 mph on the backside of the front. Much colder air is flowing down from the northwest. Chance of a spot shower this ending, then partial clearing by morning. Low temps from 33° to 36° tonight with the winds blowing into Thursday. A sunny day on Thursday with highs in the low to mid 50s and winds gusting to 38 mph. Clear and cold Thursday night, still breezy, with lows dropping below freezing here in PB once again. Increasing clouds Friday. Looking at the long range charts we could be getting set up for a cold, damp pattern early next week. See box #5 above. Nothing set in stone yet. Lots of uncertainty in the forecast for that time range.
SYNOPSIS...
LOW PRESSURE MOVES OFF THROUGH THE MARITIMES AND DRAWS ANY
LINGERING SHOWERS OUT OF SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND. WINDY AND DRYING
CONDITIONS FOLLOW FOR TONIGHT AND THURSDAY AS HIGH PRESSURE
APPROACHES. WINDS THEN DIMINISHING THURSDAY NIGHT AND FRIDAY AS
HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS OVERHEAD. UNSETTLED WEATHER IS LIKELY FOR A
PORTION OF THE WEEKEND WITH SEASONABLE TEMPS AT THE START OF NEXT
WEEK.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...

4/23 - 6:43 AM: Cold front moves offshore this morning followed by a potent shortwave that will bring a period of showers and possibly a thunderstorm this afternoon. There is a broken cloud deck this morning but that will fill back in later as the wave approaches. The winds will pick up this afternoon and be quite gusty through Thursday. Highs today in the low to mid 50s, lows tonight in the low to mid 30s. Sunshine returns for Thursday and most of Friday, but strong blustery winds on Thursday, and high temps in the mid 50s will make it feel much colder. The winds finally begin to slacken by Thursday night. Looking at the long range charts we could be getting set up for a cold, damp pattern early next week. See box #5 above. Nothing set in stone yet. Lots of uncertainty in the forecast for that time range.
SYNOPSIS...
AN UPPER LEVEL LOW PRESSURE WILL MOVE ACROSS NEW ENG TODAY AND
WILL BE ACCOMPANIED BY SCATTERED SHOWERS AND POSSIBLY AN ISOLATED
THUNDERSTORM. WINDY AND DRY CONDITIONS FOLLOW TONIGHT AND
THURSDAY WITH DIMINISHING WIND FRIDAY AS HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS IN.
UNSETTLED WEATHER IS LIKELY FOR A PORTION OF THE WEEKEND.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/...
HIGHLIGHTS...

* UNSETTLED BUT SEASONABLE WEATHER LATE FRIDAY INTO SATURDAY
* UNCERTAINTY HIGHER THAN NORMAL FOR EARLY NEXT WEEK

NEW OWC Specials begin - 4/8/14

Regional Weather Discussion ...

Strong northwest winds bringing much cooler air into New Hampshire...a few gusts today could exceed 40 mph.

Today will bring lots of sunshine and lots of wind. Highs will be mainly in the 50s with the last of the lingering clouds up north this morning.

After a chilly start, Friday looks nice with partial sunshine and highs a couple of degrees above normal ahead of the next system arriving tomorrow night.

Looking ahead to the weekend?

That next weak system moves through with some clouds and scattered showers on Saturday, while Sunday looks mostly dry (except for a rain or mixed shower possible in northern areas). Temps should run a bit cooler (48-56) on Saturday than on Sunday.

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