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:

10/21 -  6:01 PM:  That was a nice day. High pressure remains in control of our weather into Tuesday morning. As the high heads east, a cold front will approach from the west. This will spawn a second low off the coast which will enhance the rain that arrives later Tuesday and Tuesday night. The heaviest rain still looks to be Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, but ending. The rainfall will be heavy at times with 1" to 2" expected. The winds will whip up once again, but not like last weeks storm. This is a quick mover and will be gone by Wednesday afternoon. Things look quiet into Friday.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
A ridge of high pressure will remain across the area tonight and
early Tuesday before shifting well offshore. Onshore flow and an
approaching frontal system will bring rain to the area by Tuesday
night. Low pressure will develop along the front and cross the
area Tuesday night with rain becoming heavy at times along with
gusty winds along the coast. The system will exit into the
maritimes on Wednesday with high pressure and drier air to
follow for Wednesday night and Thursday. A cold front will cross
the area Friday with a few clouds and scattered showers. High
pressure and drier air follows for the upcoming weekend.

SYNOPSIS...MA
Weak high pressure will bring dry weather tonight into Tuesday
morning. Spotty light drizzle/rain develops Tuesday afternoon,
with more widespread rain Tuesday night ahead of an approaching
cold front. Behind the front, dry conditions and seasonable
temperatures follow Wednesday afternoon into Friday. Another
cold front may bring a some showers Friday afternoon and night.
High pressure builds in for most of next weekend.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY/...
*/ Highlights...

- Clearing out, drying out, seasonable Wednesday into Thursday
- Light showers possible Friday into Saturday
- Cool and dry Sunday
- The possibility of an early week warm-up ... if no clouds.

10/21 -  9:22 AM:  The record low for this date was 10° set in 1970. The remnants of TS Nestor are still brining showers to SE MA this morning. Here in the Monadnocks we have fog and winds that are calm with temps at 44°. The fog will burn off this morning and the skies will clear giving us a very nice mid fall day with highs in the 60s. Clouds will be on the increase tonight as the next system tracks our way from the Great Lakes. There is a chance of a few shower later Tuesday, but at this time, it looks like the bulk of the rain falls Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, then tapers off to showers. Expecting 1" to 2" of rainfall from this system. Stay tuned.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
Lows clouds and fog will lift this morning as high pressure
builds across the area. Onshore winds pick up Tuesday with rain
returning Tuesday night through Wednesday as a cold front and
low pressure cross the area. High pressure builds into the area
again for the end of the work week, then a fast moving front
crosses late Friday with light showers possible.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/...
* Precipitation Tuesday night - Wednesday.

SYNOPSIS...MA
Low pressure well south of New England and its rain shield will
impact Cape Cod and the Islands early this morning. As the low
continues to move seaward, rain will exit and clouds will give
way to increasing sunshine later this morning through the
afternoon. However, some cloudiness may linger over Cape Cod and
the Islands. Dry weather tonight lingers into Tuesday morning.
Spotty light showers develop Tue afternoon, then become more
widespread Tue night ahead of an approaching cold front. Behind
the front, dry conditions and seasonable temperatures follow
Wednesday afternoon into Friday. Another cold front may bring a
some showers Friday afternoon and night. High pressure builds
in for most of next weekend.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/...

Highlights...

* Area of showers push across Tuesday night into early
Wednesday
* Improving conditions and blustery winds Wednesday afternoon
* Dry and mild Thursday/Thursday night
* Another front brings scattered showers Friday afternoon into
early Saturday
* Dry later Sat into Sunday morning, then another round of
showers possible

Regional Weather Discussion ...

Manchester NH —

As quick moving system passing to our south will be bring our only rain chance until midweek tonight.
We'll see mostly cloudy skies tonight, with the chance of a few light rain showers. Clouds begin clearing out overnight, setting up brighter skies for Monday with highs in the low to mid 60s.

For the week ahead, Monday starts sunny, then Tuesday as our next system approaches we'll see afternoon or evening rain moving in with highs in the 50s. Rain clears early on Wednesday and we go back to partial sunshine to wrap the week.

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