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:

Note: There may be disruptions to the update schedule next week. There WILL be updates, but they may not be at the usual times.

5/06 - 6:42 PM: More of the same as the pattern is locked in with high pressure over the region and mild air being pumped in from the south. Lots of "weather" will occur to our west and then to our north as systems stall in these areas with low pressure riding along these stalled areas. But for us, we'll remain dry and warm into the upcoming weekend. Watching that storm system off the Georgia coast and whether of not that system will track north early next week. We'll remain dry with a fire watch as humidity remains low. I have updated the forecast grids above to include the weekend...not clear if I will get an update out in the morning. If not, I will have an update at the usual time Thursday evening.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
HIGH PRESSURE WILL HOLD OVER THE REGION TONIGHT AND WILL GRADUALLY
SLIDE OFFSHORE ON THURSDAY. A COLD FRONT WILL SLOWLY APPROACH FROM
THE WEST FRIDAY AND WILL STALL OVER NORTHERN NEW ENGLAND ON
SATURDAY. SEVERAL AREAS OF WEAK LOW PRESSURE WILL TRACK NORTHEAST
ALONG THE FRONT ON SUNDAY. THE FRONT WILL REMAIN STALLED OVER THE
REGION ON MONDAY. LOW PRESSURE TRACKING NORTHEAST OUT OF THE GREAT
LAKES WILL LIFT THE FRONT NORTHWARD MONDAY NIGHT AND WILL DRIVE A
COLD FRONT THROUGH THE AREA ON TUESDAY.

SYNOPSIS...MA
DRY WEATHER WITH UNSEASONABLY WARM AFTERNOON/S WILL CONTINUE INTO
THIS WEEKEND. THE POTENTIAL FOR WET WEATHER AND LOWER TEMPERATURES
MAY FINALLY ARRIVE EARLY NEXT WEEK.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...

*/ HIGHLIGHTS...

- AL 90 INVEST YIELDING SOME HEADACHES WITH THIS FORECAST
- CONFIDENT SW-FLOW AND ABOVE-AVERAGE TEMPS INTO THE WEEKEND
- S/SE-COASTAL ISSUES OVERNIGHT-MORNING WITH MARINE STRATUS / FOG
- INCREASING WET WEATHER CHANCES INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK

5/06 - 5:59 AM: A ridge of high pressure remains in control over Ne England. Sunny and mild weather for the rest of the week with increasing warmth. Mild today in the mid and upper 70s by warmer Thursday and Friday with highs in the 80s. So back to feeling like June into the upcoming weekend. Next chance of rain and cooler temps will be late in the weekend. Otherwise we'll be watching that storm off the east coast of Florida/Georgia where the water is unusually warm for this time of year. There are no steering currents to tell where this storm might go.

5/05 - 6:45 PM: High pressure dominates our weather into next weekend. The fire warnings end at 8PM, so I didn't update. Mild to warm, dry weather continues for the rest of this week. As we get warmer towards the end of the week and into next weekend, we may see better chances for rainfall. Otherwise we'll be watching that storm off the east coast of Florida/Georgia where the water is unusually warm for this time of year. There are no steering currents to tell where this storm might go.

OWC Sales - "OWC Weekender Specials" - 05/02/15

Regional Weather Discussion ...

The sunny, warm and dry pattern looks to continue through the end of the week...changes start to occur over the weekend itself.

Today, tomorrow and Friday will all be mostly sunny and warm. Temps will top off in the 70s today (PM sea breeze at the coastline) and into upper 70s to lower half of the 80s for many at the end of the week (again, turning cooler at the coast with the developing sea breeze).

At this point the start of the weekend is looking warm with the most sun south and a few extra clouds with a chance of t-shower late on Saturday in northern areas. Mother's Day looks partly sunny and warm with a shower or thundershower possible. We will fine tune that all important weekend forecast as we get a bit closer.

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