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:

7/01 -  7:37 AM: Quick update this morning. Sunny start, then cold front approaches from the west by afternoon. This front will touch of showers and storms. Not clear if there will be severe weather, but MA NWS has mentioned a slight risk of a tornado. SO stay tuned on that. Showers/storms end late tonight with a dry and sunny holiday weekend ahead.

region overnight. A trough of low pressure will linger over the

SYNOPSIS...MA
An approaching cold front will bring numerous showers and scattered
thunderstorms this evening, and a few of them may become strong to
severe with locally heavy rainfall. High pressure builds in
behind the front and prevails through much of next week, resulting
in warming temperatures and dry weather.

Regional Weather Discussion ...

Before the holiday weekend truly gets going, we'll see one more round of showers and storms. Otherwise, you won't be able to ask for much more this weekend.

We'll be starting your Friday (welcome to July!) with sunshine. As the next, quick moving system approaches, clouds will build during the afternoon with a slight chance of a shower through 4pm. Shower and storm chances will increase this evening until an hour or two after midnight. A few t-storms and heavier downpours will be possible for all the holiday weekend travelers.

Drier air will take over by early Saturday. Mostly sunny skies can be expected in southern areas on Saturday while the sun/cloud combo can be expected farther north. While a brief mountain shower is possible, a good part of the day will be dry. Temps will range from the upper 60s in the North Country to around 80 far south. It will be quite breezy too, which will keep humidity levels in check.

Sunday and Monday (The 4th) will feature lots of sun and pleasant conditions (low 70s north to low 80s south).

Have a great holiday weekend!!!
