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:

1/18 -  6:40 PM: Pockets of freezing drizzle continue to move across northern MA and in some locations in Southern NH. Another wave of low pressure will cross the region tonight bringing a possible 1" to 2" snowfall. Most of that will fall to our north, but you may want to be prepared for some slippery driving Thursday morning. Conditions improve on Thursday with the overcast breaking up and milder air moving in. The next chance for a strong storm system appears to be early next week at the moment. Stay tuned. See the advisories and Hazardous Weather Outlooks above.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
Low pressure will pass through the region tonight with some
additional light snow. High pressure will build in for the
remainder of the week, with above normal temperatures expected
into Monday. A storm system may affect the region beginning Sunday
night and continuing into early next week.

SYNOPSIS...MA
High pressure builds over the region Thursday through Saturday.
A weak cold front slips through the region late Saturday, followed
by Canadian high pressure and slightly colder temperatures for
Sunday. A significant storm system may impact New England Monday
into Tuesday with heavy rain and coastal wind but some interior
snow and ice is possible.

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

* Mainly dry with above normal temps Fri/Sat
* Low risk of some spotty light rain or freezing rain Fri night
* Heavy rainfall and strong coastal wind possible Mon into Tue with
some snow/ice possible in the interior

1/18 -  11:42 AM: Updated advisories and local forecasts

1/18 -  7:55 AM: Light snow continues to fall here in the Monadnocks. This will mix with freezing drizzle this morning. Precipitation in various forms will continue to fall off and on through the day, finally coming to an end this evening. We have a fresh 5" on the ground here in PB this morning. Roadways will continue to be slippery through the afternoon. Most advisories expire at noon today (all have been updated) but they may issue new hazard warnings for slippery travel later so check back. Dry weather and sunshine return for Thursday and Friday.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
Low pressure will redevelop off the mid Atlantic coast early
today. Another weak front will pass through the area early
Thursday. This will be mainly dry with just clouds across the
region and a few upslope snow showers along the Canadian border.
High pressure will build in for the remainder of the week, with
above normal temperatures expected into Monday. A storm system may
affect the region beginning Sunday night and continuing into early
next week.

SYNOPSIS...MA
A mixed bag of wintry weather will continue to impact S New England
this morning, spotty showers lingering through the day into the
overnight hours. High pressure builds over the region beginning
Thursday and through the weekend. A weak cold front slips through
the high late Saturday, followed by Canadian high pressure and
slightly colder temperatures for Sunday. Developing low pressure
over the Southern Plains will bring rain and possibly some initial
ice to New England Monday, with the rain lingering into Tuesday.

Precipitation becomes light throughout the day, so weather-types
will alter becoming drizzle, freezing drizzle, or light snow.
