Stuff to make using the site easier ..

I use abbreviations for many things:
PB = Peterborough
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. The Polls page is located under the "Fun" tab in the main menu.

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

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.

NEW OWC Specials begin - 4/8/14

Regional Weather Discussion ...

It was a pretty nice weekend, and we're not done with the nice spring weather yet!

Today to begin the week, we're looking for a mix of sun and clouds and temperatures will challenge or reach 70 degrees in most of the state, with the exception of coastal areas.

Tonight, clear to partly cloudy skies will be here. As long as we stay clear enough, there will be a good view of the International Space Station heading over the New Hampshire skies around 8:43pm. (time may vary by a minute or two from location to location). It will appear in the northwest sky and then head almost directly overhead.

For Tuesday, we start off partly sunn and still warm. Once again, temperatures around the state will be near 70 before clouds begin to increase as a cold front approaches from the west. That front brings shower, downpours, and the possibility of a rumble of thunder late day and tonight.

Wednesday, we start off with rain but as it pulls away to the east, we start to dry out, but we also get windy and chillier.

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