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:

4/29 -  9:01 AM: Not much chance of a shower this morning. Skies will turn less cloudy today as the day progresses. A cold front will press down form the NW later and the winds will pick up. Mild today with highs in the low to mid 70s. Cooler tonight with lows in the low 40s. More sunshine on Sunday, but cooler temps with highs around 60°. After that a series of impulses will bring a chance for rain through the early part of next week. The models depict a much stronger coastal storm in the area by Thursday. Stay tuned.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
A weak cold front will drop south through the region early
today and will stall south of New England tonight as high
pressure builds in from the northwest. High pressure will crest
over the region early Sunday before shifting offshore. A warm
front will lift north toward the region Sunday night and
Monday. Low pressure slowly moving northeast out of the Great
lakes will drive an occlusion through the region Monday night
and early Tuesday. A trough of low pressure will linger over
the area Tuesday night and Wednesday. Low pressure will approach
from the south on Thursday.

Early indications are that a strong low pressure system will
move northeastward toward our region Thursday and Friday which
could set the stage for some heavy rainfall. However, confidence
is low at this time given the time range from the potential
event.

SYNOPSIS...MA
Mild start for today with showers and isolated thunderstorms
moving through a portion of the area in the morning. Warm
conditions follow once again for the daytime. After a cold
frontal passage tonight, high pressure builds over New England
Sunday with dry but cooler air. A sprawling low pressure in the
Plains will push a warm front through our area Monday, then
swing a cold front through on Tuesday. Another storm moves
toward southern New England late Thursday or Friday, and could
linger nearby into Saturday.

Thursday-Friday...

Signal the past several days has been for a storm to impact our
region during this time. The details are much harder to come by
with confidence. Non-GFS model consensus on timing would bring
rain into our area Thursday, most likely mid to late afternoon.
The greatest chance for rainfall still looks to be Thursday
night and Friday.

4/28 -  6:01 PM: We hit 79.1° today in Peterborough. Partly cloudy tonight with lows in the mid 50s. Thickening clouds as a cold front approaches the region and crosses Saturday morning. A few passing showers, then partly cloudy for the rest of the day. Highs will be in the mid 70s, but cooler Saturday night with lows in the mid 40s. That cold front stalls to our south and acts as a running boards for subsequent low pressure systems early next week. Partly sunny Sunday with highs only in the low to mid 60s. Next impulse arrives for Monday with some showers.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
A cold front will move offshore by early evening. Another cold
front will push across New England on Saturday before stalling
to our south. High pressure will briefly build in from the northwest
late Saturday then shift offshore Sunday as the stalled frontal
boundary lifts north as a warm front. The warm front will stall
over the region Sunday night and Monday. Low pressure lifting
northeast out of the Great Lakes will drive an occluded front
toward the region Monday night and will cross the region on
Tuesday. Low pressure will slowly move east through southern
Canada Tuesday night through Wednesday.

SYNOPSIS...MA
Another mild night tonight with a risk for showers and
thunderstorms for some in the morning. Warm conditions follow
once again for the daytime tomorrow. After a cold frontal
passage tomorrow night high pressure builds over New England
Sunday with dry but cooler air. Sprawling low pressure in the
Plains will push a warm front through our area Monday, then
swing a cold front through on Tuesday. Another storm moves up
from the Gulf of Mexico late Thursday or Friday.

Thanks to all who entered the April Rainfall contest. Good luck! The Winner will be annouced on May 1!

OWC - Weekender Sales - 4/29/2017

Regional Weather Discussion ...

The second quick moving system will be a cool front that could provide a shower or two Saturday morning…but much like today, we'll see partial sunshine and temps in the 70s in the afternoon.

The cooler air behind that front truly arrives Saturday night (lows in the 40s.)

Any sort of early sunshine Sunday will give way to clouds and a passing shower or two in the afternoon. Highs will be much cooler: upper 50s to mid 60s.

Bottom line- no washouts for the next three days, but plan accordingly.

Have a great weekend!
