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.

10/24 - 6:55 AM: Showers, fog, and drizzle will continue this morning. The showers should taper off before noon and we'll be left with a cloudy day. Some breaks of sun are likely from west to east later in the day. The winds will pick up tonight as this powerful Nor'Easter heads off into the Gulf of Maine and then out to sea creating a pressure gradient between itself and high pressure trying to build in behind it. Decreasing skies tonight with partly sunny conditions expected Saturday. Expect my regular e-mail blast some time this morning.

HEAVY RAINS TO THE REGION THU WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE SLOWLY OUT TO

HIGH PRESSURE PROVIDES DRY AND SEASONABLY MILD WEATHER

10/23 - 6:44 PM: I am sitting in a restaurant in south central MA waiting for a friend I've never met. So no weekend e-mail until tomorrow. The rain has lest up to the west and will continue to taper off tonight into Friday. We can still see showers on radar (see above) spiraling in as the storm continues to spin offshore. Still a chance for strong wind gusts and briefly heavy rainfall. Gradual improvement on Friday with sunny breaks expected in western and central areas through the afternoon. Clearing comes to the coast last. Expect an e-mail in the morning.
SYNOPSIS...
A POWERFUL EARLY SEASON COASTAL STORM WILL PASS SOUTHEAST OF

BEFORE DIMINISHING FRIDAY...AS THE STORM SLOWLY PULLS AWAY FROM
NEW ENGLAND. SHOWERS ARE POSSIBLE AGAIN SATURDAY NIGHT INTO
SUNDAY...THEN DRY WEATHER RETURNS SUNDAY INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK. A

10/23 - 6:59 AM: Early season Nor'Easter is impacting the region this morning with heavy rain, street and small stream flooding and wind advisories. Strong winds are mostly confined to eastern areas from Nashua NH south. Rainfall is pin wheeling around the low and pulling in lots of ocean moisture from Georges Banks. Another area of heavy rainfall will impact SE later this morning. I am approaching 2" of rainfall in PB. Heavy rain through this morning tapering down to showery weather this afternoon and tonight. Showers continue tonight into Friday morning with some breaks in the overcast possible in western and central areas later in the day. I will be sending out the Weekend Outlook E-mail FRIDAY MORNING instead of the usual Thursday night.

Regional Weather Discussion ...

Yesterday's heavy rain turned lighter and a little more scattered overnight, but will still be around to start the day, good timing for the weekend though!

Today will remain a bit unsettled but showers will be much more spotty by afternoon, and mostly in northern and central NH. There could even be some breaks of sun in southern areas. High temperatures in the 50s with a fairly noticeable northerly breeze, which finally lightens later tonight.

Saturday will be partly sunny and a lot more pleasant than lately (highs: 55-65°.) Later Saturday and Saturday night a weak cold front slides through New Hampshire. This means showers are again possible into early Sunday.

A warming trend will develop during the early to mid part of next week.

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