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.

Weather Permitting: Iceland
(Best viewed in full screen)

 

Author: "In September, my wife and I packed up our photo gear and headed to Iceland for 10 days to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. Of the 10 days we were there, it rained for 7 days, with cloud cover for 8 days. We set out in the cold, wind and rain to capture as much of Iceland as we could. As the weather made shooting difficult, "Weather permitting" quickly became the theme of our trip.
Even with the weather, there was nothing but awe for Iceland. It's an amazing place. Every 5 minutes we'd come across new terrain, textures, and colors. This was my effort at trying to capture all of the unique landscapes that Iceland has to offer.
After a few non-serious attempts playing around with a homemade time-lapse dolly, this is my first complete time-lapse video, which includes a mix of time-lapse, long exposure, and video footage."

Rich's Local Weather Discussion:

Please note: There will not be an update Saturday morning. I will resume the regular update schedule Sunday morning.

High pressure over southern Canada will contnue to keep us cool and dry through Saturday. Then low pressure to our south will move north by Saturday night and Sunday bringinga cool rain to the region Sunday and Monday. Looks like most of the rain falls Sunday night/Monday. The pattern shifts back to dry after this bout of rain but later next week, more rain is in the extended forecast.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
HIGH PRESSURE AT THE SURFACE WILL REMAIN IN PLACE OVER NORTHERN
NEW ENGLAND THROUGH TOMORROW. LOW PRESSURE WILL DEVELOP SOUTH OF
THE AREA ON SUNDAY AND THEN MOVE SOUTH OF CAPE COD ON MONDAY. THIS
SYSTEM WILL KEEP CONDITIONS IN THE REGION COOL AND WET INTO
TUESDAY. ANOTHER SYSTEM WILL MOVE THROUGH LATE WEDNESDAY AND
THURSDAY...BRINGING ANOTHER SHOT OF PRECIPITATION WITH IT.

SYNOPSIS...MA
SHOWERS OVERNIGHT...MAINLY TOWARD SOUTHWEST NEW ENGLAND...WITH ONE
MORE DAY OF QUIET WEATHER AND LINGERING HIGH PRESSURE FOR
SATURDAY. UNSETTLED AND COOL WEATHER FOLLOWS FOR SUNDAY INTO
MONDAY AS LOW PRESSURE TRACKS SOUTH OF NEW ENGLAND. A BRIEF DRYING
TREND TUESDAY IS ONLY FOLLOWED BY MORE UNSETTLED WEATHER FOR LATE
NEXT WEEK.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/...
HIGHLIGHTS...

* UNSEASONABLY COOL WITH PERIODS OF RAIN SUNDAY INTO MONDAY
* DRYING TREND LIKELY TUE...POSSIBLY LINGERING INTO WEDNESDAY...ALONG
WITH MILDER TEMPERATURES
* MORE UNSETTLED WEATHER POSSIBLE LATE NEXT WEEK

4/28 -  9:59 PM: There are some light showers moving across CT tonight, but they will remain south of our region. Looks like our weather will remain dry and relatively cool, through Saturday before a disturbance brings showers on Sunday. This pattern will suppress storm systems south until Sunday, but the general overall pattern seems to keep us in this cool pattern into at least the first week of May.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
DRY AIR AND SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE PERSISTS INTO SATURDAY...AS A
SERIES OF WEAK DISTURBANCES PASS TO OUR SOUTH. LOW PRESSURE TRACKING
SOUTH OF THE AREA LATE SUNDAY INTO MONDAY WILL BRING THE NEXT
CHANCE OF PRECIPITATION...WHICH WILL BE MAINLY RAIN. WEAK HIGH
PRESSURE BUILDS IN FOR TUESDAY...WITH ANTHER LOW PASSING OFFSHORE
MID TO LATE NEXT WEEK.

SYNOPSIS...MA
A SERIES OF WEAK LOWS WILL TRACK SOUTH OF NEW ENGLAND TONIGHT
THROUGH FRI NIGHT...POSSIBLY BRINGING A PERIOD OR TWO OF LIGHT
RAIN/SPRINKLES TO CONNECTICUT...RHODE ISLAND AND SOUTHEAST
MASSACHUSETTS. OTHERWISE REMAINDER OF THE REGION REMAINS DRY
THANKS TO HIGH PRESSURE STRETCHING FROM CENTRAL CANADA TO NORTHERN
NEW ENGLAND. THIS WILL YIELD MILD AFTERNOONS AND CHILLY NIGHTS. A
RETURN TO UNSETTLED AND COOL WEATHER IS EXPECTED SUNDAY INTO
MONDAY AS LOW PRESSURE TRACKS SOUTH OF NEW ENGLAND. A DRYING
TREND FOLLOWS TUESDAY...HOWEVER MORE UNSETTLED WEATHER IS POSSIBLE
MID TO LATE NEXT WEEK AS A NEW AREA OF LOW PRESSURE MAY FORM ALONG

OWC Weekender Specials - 4/29/2016

Regional Weather Discussion ...

As we wrap up a drier than normal April, we see an up and down forecast for the weekend and the hope for some much needed showers down the line.

A lot of high clouds have been drifting across southern and central NH, some filtered sunshine is expected today, while it will be sunny in northern parts of NH. Highs today will be in the 50s with just the smallest chance of a shower.

Now to the weekend...Saturday looks like the brighter and more reliable of the two days. Saturday will be milder too (low 60s in many spots away from the coast) before the next system brings clouds our way later Saturday Night into Sunday. Showers are likely at times Sunday. It will be cooler as well, with highs in the upper 40s to low 50s.

The damp and cool weather looks to stick around into Monday before it dries out for Tuesday.

Have a great weekend!
