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: Live Radar is ACTIVE

7/23 - 6:46 AM: A mild and muggy morning in progress with clear skies across the region. Today will be the hottest day of the week with highs in the upper 80s and low 90s and high humidity. We should remain dry most of the day but a cold front advancing into our region from the west will touch off late day and evening showers and thunderstorms. Some of these will be strong with wind gusts, lightning, and flash flooding. See the advisories above. The best area for the worst storms is west of I495 and north of the MA Pike. By the time these storms reach eastern areas their strength should diminish some. Frontal progression slows Thursday morning which will allow another wave to move along it producing some showers through Thursday morning. Sunshine breaks out east of I495 but clouds and showers remain possible in SE MA and the Cape. Highs will be in the mid and upper 70s with more comfortable humidity by Thursday night. Sunny and dry Friday.

NEW OWC Specials begin - 7/16/14

Regional Weather Discussion ...

A Classic July day on the way...heat and humidity, then afternoon and early evening storms, some of which could be strong. Cooler, more comfortable air will follow for the end of the week.

Today will be a hazy, hot and humid one with building clouds during the afternoon. A line of strong thunderstorms will likely move through during the afternoon and into the evening (most favored timeline: 1pm-9pm.) Any storm has the potential to produce damaging gusty winds in addition to very heavy rain, frequent lightning and hail.

Storms will exit this evening, but a lot of lingering clouds and maybe a few scattered showers...mostly in southeastern parts of NH Thursday morning. It will be much cooler (highs only in the 70s statewide) and turning less humid.

Friday and Saturday should feature more sun than clouds along with warm conditions (mid 70s to mid 80s) and lower humidity levels.

At this point, Sunday looks warm and more humid with our next chance of afternoon storms.
