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:

1/16 -  5:53 PM: Low pressure will develop off the SE coast tonight and then track towards the Gulf of Maine. I did not send an e-mail advisory out last night because the track wasn't clear. It still is a bit wobbly, but the storm center now appears to track much closer to the coast, perhaps right over the Cape, as it heads northeast. That will bring some rain and mixed precipitation into the SE coastal areas, lowering snow amounts. This also pushed the axis of heaviest snow a bit further west. See the latest snow estimates in the "Winter Weather Center" panel above. This storm moves rapidly up the coast so the snow ends later Wednesday afternoon with skies starting to clear overnight. Sunny and cold Thursday. All Warnings have been updated and so have the snowfall estimate maps in "Winter Weather Center" panel above. After the storm temps begin to rise back to more normal winter averages. Stay tuned.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
Low pressure will develop off the mid atlantic coast this
evening then intensify as it moves rapidly northeast through
the Gulf of Maine Wednesday. High pressure builds eastward into
the region late in the week and into the weekend with a return
southwest flow bringing warmer temperatures by the weekend.

SYNOPSIS...MA
A developing coastal low pressure will emerge off the Delmarva
tonight and track northeast to near Cape Cod Wednesday morning.
This system is expected to bring a moderate to heavy snowfall to
western and central MA and northern CT late tonight into Wednesday.
Snow, with a likely transition to rain for the BOS-PVD corridor
by the mid-morning. However, impacts to the morning commute are
likely. Mainly dry weather likely Wednesday night into Sunday,
with a warming trend during this weekend. Another low pressure
should affect our region early next week with mostly rain.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/...

Highlights...

* Cold and dry Thursday
* Continued dry with a warming trend through this weekend
* Another storm may bring mostly rain Monday into Monday Night

1/16 -  6:36 AM: Cloudy and cold today, but not as cold as yesterday. Low pressure shifts east then a coastal storm forms south of Long Island. The track of this system, in the models, is a bit more south this morning, so the heaviest snow is still expected across northern MA and Southern NH. That snow begins tonight, after 8PM and continues until mid afternoon on Wednesday. The heaviest snowfall will likely be falling during the Wednesday morning commute, naturally. Snow estimates above 6" seem likely with Winter Storm Warnings now in place, but the track is still not 100% clear. This doesn't look like any blockbuster storm, but advisory level snow seems likely. The snow ends later Wednesday afternoon with skies slowly clearing tonight. Sunny skies and more seasonably cold weather takes over into next weekend. All Warnings have been updated and so have the snowfall estimate maps in "Winter Weather Center" panel above. After the storm temps begin to rise back to more normal winter averages. Stay tuned.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
Low pressure will develop off the mid atlantic coast today then
intensify as it moves northeast through the Gulf of Maine Wednesday.
High pressure builds eastward into the region late in the week and
into the weekend with a return southwest flow bringing warmer
temperatures by the weekend.

SYNOPSIS...MA
Low pressure will push east out of the Great Lakes today, then
will redevelop off the mid Atlantic coast this evening. There
is the likelihood for several inches of snow across a good
portion of the region tonight into Wednesday afternoon. However,
there is still some uncertainty for a mix of rain and snow
southeast of the Boston to Providence corridor. Mainly dry
weather likely Thursday into Sunday, with a warming trend during
the weekend. Another low pressure system may affect our region
early next week with mostly rain.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/...

Highlights...

* Cold and dry Thursday
* Continued dry with a warming trend through the weekend
* Another storm may bring mostly rain Monday

- 2018 - A year of decisions regarding the continuation of RichLefko.com.
RichLefko.com needs two new annual sponsors to stay on the web and deliver the weather alerts you need, when you need them. E-mail alerts add up to one of the largest costs at RichLefko.com. I also need to update this website to better handle cell phones, and other portable electronics. I am willing to put in the time and effort, but I need some help to osffset the cost of e-mail, web hosting, and software.
In order to accomplish this I need two additional sponsors to add to the couple I already have. In the past I had several sponsors who have now retired their businesses.
Contact me if you, or someone you know, has a small business and would like to support the continuation of RichLefko.com. It isn't expensive. I do accept donations as well.
