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.

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:

6/25 -  6:17 PM:  Most of the showers and storm activity has moved past Peterborough, NH, dropping about .37" of rainfall. I can't rule out a shower or storm this evening. It is still raining, and thundering, along coastal areas but that will move out this evening. Fog will form in coastal areas tonight. A warm front will bring the chance of a shower or Thunderstorm Wednesday night with warmer and more humid air just to our south. Some os that may lift into New England by Thursday/Friday.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
A warm front crosses the region this evening, followed by a
weak cold front late Wednesday, bringing more humid conditions
to the area for Wednesday and Thursday. Another cold front
will push southeast through the area Thursday setting off
showers and thunderstorms. High pressure builds in briefly for
Friday, but a large upper level low will position itself over
the region this weekend, providing unsettled conditions.

SYNOPSIS...MA
A frontal boundary will bring a period of showers and a few embedded
thunderstorms with locally heavy rainfall into early this evening
followed a drying trend later tonight. Summer like warmth is
expected Wednesday through Friday with a few showers and
thunderstorms at times, but should be mainly dry. A cold front
sweeps south through Southern New England Saturday bringing another
chance of showers and thunderstorms. Cooler weather then moves in
Sunday, followed by warming Tuesday.

6/25 -  6:27 AM:  There are showers moving across Vermont and NY State this morning. These will work their way east ahead of a cold front crosses the region later today. Showers and some thunderstorms are expected. The showers move east this evening with skies turning partly cloudy. Expect areas of fog to form overnight. There is a chance of afternoon showers on Wednesday, mostly in the mountains, as warmer air moves in. Things will get quite toasty here later in the week and heat and humidity build in for our first taste of true summer weather. Troughing will be in place over the northeastern CONUS and eastern Canada for much of the long term period, with waves of energy arriving periodically and bringing bouts of rain and thunderstorms.

.SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
A warm front will cross the area Tuesday, followed by a cold
front Tuesday night, which will produce a period of showers,
with a chance of thunderstorms. A cold front will push southeast
through the area Thursday bringing showers and thunderstorms.
High pressure builds in briefly for Friday, but a large upper
level low will position itself near the CWA over the weekend,
providing unsettled conditions.

SYNOPSIS...MA
An approaching cold front and wave of low pressure will bring a
period of widespread showers and a few embedded thunderstorms
with locally heavy rainfall today, especially south of the Mass
Pike. Summer like warmth is expected Wednesday through Friday
with a few showers and thunderstorms at times, but should be
mainly dry. A cold front sweeps south through Southern New
England Saturday bringing another chance of showers and
thunderstorms. Cooler weather then moves in Sunday.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/...
*** Locally heavy rainfall this afternoon along with a low
risk of localized urban and poor drainage flooding, mainly
south of the Mass Pike ***

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/...

Highlights...

Regional Weather Discussion ...

MANCHESTER, N.H. —

After a string of pleasant early summer days, a cooler, unsettled day is expected with some showers and storms.

After some sunny breaks early, clouds will thicken and rain arrives later this morning. During the afternoon and early evening, there might be an embedded t-storm or two with the scattered downpours also. Temperatures will be much cooler in the afternoon as well, highs in the 60s to lower 70s, you may notice some humidity building in too.

As we dry out later tonight (some fog forms), we get back to partial sunshine and the warmer temperatures on Wednesday.

Scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms again possible Thursday and Friday, mainly in the North Country. Highs go into the 80s with higher humidity lingering.

These "discussions" are from the NWS, or WMUR Manchester NH, or me.
