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:

8/22 -  6:23 PM: A large line of strong to severe thunderstorms is cutting a path across central NY State at this hour, headed our way. The timing is critical for us. The longer it takes for the storms to arrive, the weaker they will become as the sun sets and daytime heating ends. Nonetheless, we have a severe thunderstorm watch up for western MA, Central and western NH, and in Vermont. Even as the storms die down the strong winds will be a problem later tonight. By Wednesday morning the cold front will be headed offshore taking all of this heat and humidity with it. Increasing sunshine on Wednesday with decreasing humidly. Not as warm with highs in the upper 70s and low 80s. Cooler nights and mild days follow into next weekend.
Congratulations to Donna Pratt of Nashua NH who became out 180,000th visitor! Thanks Donna.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
A strong cold front will sweep east across the region tonight
and early Wednesday accompanied by showers and thunderstorms.
High pressure and drier air follows the front late Wednesday
through the weekend.

SYNOPSIS...MA
A cold front will bring the potential for scattered showers and
thunderstorms late tonight, which may persist into Wednesday
morning along the coastal plain. High pressure brings dry
weather with very comfortable humidity levels Thursday through
early next week.

8/22 - 6:24 AM: A very warm and humid day ahead with highs in the upper 80s and a few places in the low 90s. Heat indices will be in the 90s today. However, we will only have one day of this as a strong cold front pushes east and crosses the region tonight. Ahead of this system, showers and thunderstorms will develop this afternoon and end tonight. Mild and less humid air rolls in fro Wednesday and the rest of the week. Skies will turn mostly sunny on Wednesday with delightful weather into the upcoming weekend. It might be a bit cool for late August, but I don't think anyone will complain.
Congratulations to Donna Pratt of Nashua NH who became out 180,000th visitor! Thanks Donna.

SYNOPSIS... NH/ME
High pressure moves off to the east today. A strong cold front will move across the region tonight and early Wednesday. High pressure and drier air follows the front Wednesday night through Friday.

A cold front will bring the potential for scattered showers and thunderstorms late tonight which may persist into Wednesday morning along the coastal plain. High ]pressure brings dry weather Thursday through Sunday with very comfortable humidity levels.

OWC - Back to School Sales - 08/17/2017

Regional Weather Discussion ...

Hazy sunshine and some humidity today with an approaching front to our west will lead to a big change in our pattern over the next few days.

Highs will climb into the 80s to lower 90s with a southwesterly breeze bringing dewpoints up into the 60s. There could be a few mid to late afternoon storms in the northern half of NH, but the better chance statewide will be later tonight as a cool front crosses the state. Heavier downpours are possible along with a few storms will gusty winds.

Any early clouds Wednesday will give way to sunshine and a west-northwesterly breeze that will knock down the humidity into the afternoon.

Highs will be about 10° cooler: in the 70s to lower 80s. From there we are looking at a bit of an autumn preview from Thursday through the weekend. A mix of sun and clouds coupled with low humidity levels for August will make for great weather to be outdoors all the way into early next week. Highs will be in the 70s and lows in the 40s and 50s.

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