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.

9/23 - 5:41 PM: Clear and cool tonight in the mid 40s. Another day and sunny day on Wednesday with highs in the mid 60s. As high pressure builds east of the region on Wednesday a coastal low begins to form and lift north Wednesday night. High pressure will keep the system at bay but it will begin to track north and east by Thursday. Lots of uncertainty with this system. The models have trended further north with a soaking rain at least from I90 south and east. The current track depicts a sharp cutoff of rain from Route 2 north. SE MA actually needs this rainfall as they have been much drier than we have in NH. System pulls out by Friday morning with imp[roving conditions. Still looks warm for this weekend.
SYNOPSIS...
HIGH PRESSURE WILL BRING ANOTHER DRY AND MILD DAY WEDNESDAY. LOW
PRESSURE MOVING UP THE EAST COAST WILL LIKELY BRING RAIN AND COOL
TEMPERATURES TO PORTIONS OF SOUTHERN NEW ENG THURSDAY INTO
THURSDAY NIGHT...ESPECIALLY SOUTH OF THE MASS PIKE. A FEW SHOWERS
COULD LINGER INTO EARLY FRIDAY...THEN HIGH PRESSURE RETURNS FOR THE
WEEKEND WITH WARM AND DRY CONDITIONS. COOLER WEATHER WILL ARRIVE
SOMETIME NEXT MONDAY OR TUESDAY.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/...

HIGHLIGHTS...

* CONFIDENCE INCREASING FOR SOAKING RAIN THU/THU NIGHT SOUTH OF I-90
* LINGERING SHOWERS POSSIBLE EARLY FRI ACROSS EASTERN NEW ENGLAND
* UNSEASONABLY WARM AFTERNOON/S THIS WEEKEND
* BACKDOOR COLD FRONT COOLS US DOWN SOME BY NEXT MON OR TUE

9/23 - 5:37 AM: Welcome to Fall in New England. A cold start to a very nice day. Temps should rise into the mid 60s today under bright sunny skies. Mostly clear and not as cold tonight with lows in the low to mid 40s. Still mild and sunny on Wednesday and I am still expecting a warming trend to begin. Dry weather continues through mid-week and into the late week period with temps warming up after Wednesday. The warm up does look significant at this time with high temps possibly touching some records into the weekend.
SYNOPSIS...
HIGH PRESSURE WILL BRING DRY WEATHER ALONG WITH MILD DAYS AND
COOL NIGHTS THROUGH WEDNESDAY. COASTAL LOW PRESSURE WELL SOUTH OF
THE REGION MAY GRAZE SOUTH COASTAL AREAS WITH A LOW RISK FOR FEW
SHOWERS THURSDAY AFTERNOON INTO FRIDAY MORNING. HIGH PRESSURE
RETURNS FRIDAY INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK WITH DRY WEATHER AND
UNSEASONABLY WARM AFTERNOONS. IT IS POSSIBLE A FEW RECORD HIGH
TEMPERATURES MAY BE CHALLENGED THIS WEEKEND.

9/22 - 5:02 PM: Fall begins at 10:29 PM tonight. I'll be asleep, so let me know how it goes. Cold high pressure was ushered in on busy NW winds today. Looks like those winds will begin to die down after midnight, but those winds will keep a frost from occurring overnight. In the upper 30s and low 40s as you go south tonight. I think this will be the coldest night of the next 5-7 days. A very pleasant day on Tuesday with highs in the mid and upper 60s for our first full day of the fall season. Clear and not quite as cold Tuesday night with lows in the low to mid 40s. Dry weather continues through mid-week and into the late week period with temps warming up after Wednesday. The warm up does look significant at this time with high temps possibly touching some records into the weekend. We'll see.
SYNOPSIS...
HIGH PRESSURE WILL BRING DRY WEATHER ALONG WITH MILD DAYS AND
COOL NIGHTS THROUGH WEDNESDAY. DISTANT COASTAL LOW PRESSURE MAY
GRAZE SE NEW ENGLAND WITH THE LOW RISK FOR FEW SHOWERS WEDNESDAY
NIGHT INTO THURSDAY. HIGH PRESSURE RETURNS FRIDAY INTO EARLY NEXT
WEEK WITH DRY WEATHER AND UNSEASONABLY WARM AFTERNOON/S. ITS
POSSIBLE A FEW RECORD HIGH TEMPS ARE CHALLENGED THIS WEEKEND.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY/...

NEW OWC Specials begin - 9/17/14

Regional Weather Discussion ...

Welcome to Autumn New Hampshire! A nice stretch of weather is expected with just a few small bumps in the road, and a warmup for next weekend!

Today looks bright and mild with the coolest temps in northern areas where some stubborn extra clouds might mean a stray shower. Highs will climb into the 60s statewide with a lighter wind this afternoon (kicking onshore at the coast by mid afternoon.)

Wednesday will be sunny, statewide, along with seasonable temps (mid to upper 60s) but cooler at the coast.

The next system to watch will make its closest pass at NH on Thursday. At this point it looks like it will pass well to our south, so we stay dry...but may have some clouds around.

Beyond that point, Friday and the weekend look dry and warmer. We could see part of southern NH with high temps around 80 on Saturday & Sunday!

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