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:

9/23 -  6:25 AM:  It is a warm morning outside at this hour. Another unseasonably warm day ahead, muggy, with highs in the mid 80s. Increasing clouds as a cold front drops south. Already this morning we see showers to our north and west. These showers should hold off here in the south until this evening. I can't rule out isolated thunderstorms. The cold front moves offshore by Tuesday morning with cooler temps in its wake (70s) with a return to sunny skies. We'll remain in this pattern well into next weekend. Expect temps to warm a bit by Wednesday, then another cold front Thursday or Friday, with cooler temps, to be followed by another warming trend into the weekend. The long range charts are not 100% on this, so stay tuned.
Less than 500 visitors away from 200,000. Will it be you?

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
Warm, moist southwest flow continues today as a low pressure
area moves across New England. Pockets of showers across the
north this morning will expand this afternoon as a cold front
approaches, with more numerous showers later this evening and
tonight. A thunderstorm or two cannot be ruled out. Unsettled,
showery weather continues Tuesday, with cooler but seasonable
temperatures Tuesday and Wednesday. Another cold front will
cross the region Thursday, followed by high pressure on Friday.

SYNOPSIS...MA
Southwest flow ahead of an advancing cold front will make for a
rather warm night tonight, and one more very warm and breezy
day Monday. Areas of dense fog are again likely tonight along
the south coast of RI and MA. Showers and a few thunderstorms
will accompany this front late Monday afternoon and Monday
night. High pressure settles in Tuesday and Wednesday with mild
days and cool nights. Swells from Jerry will cause increased rip
current risk along the coast, especially Monday through
Wednesday. Another front approaches Thursday into Thursday
evening, with dry conditions returning Friday.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/...

*/ Highlights...

- Low chance of showers late Thursday into Thursday evening
- Warming up considerably by the weekend into early next week
- Overall temperatures above average, and a very dry forecast

9/22 -  5:24 PM:  A mild night ahead with lows in the 60s. Clouds will thicken and lower on Monday as a cold front approaches the region. Warm and humid ahead of that front. As the cold front passes on Tuesday temps will drop, but it will remain seasonably mild through midweek. Then another cold front will cross, but that will only bring temps down briefly, as next weekend looks pretty mild once again. Stay tuned.
Less than 500 visitors away from 200,000. Will it be you?

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
High pressure sliding offshore will bring deep southwest flow
over the region through Monday. That will mean a continuation of
very warm temperatures for late September. Gradually a cold
front will approach Monday, bringing showers to the area into
Tuesday. Cooler, but still seasonable temperatures will follow
the front Tuesday and Wednesday. Another cold front will cross
the region Thursday, followed by high pressure on Friday.

Rainfall totals for the month of September have only reached .16
inches for Portland. Another .16 inches of rain is possible with
the Monday into Tuesday precipitation, keeping the Forest City
well below normal for the month of September. The driest
September ever recorded in Portland was .30 inches which fell
during this month in 1948.

SYNOPSIS...MA
Southwest flow ahead of an advancing cold front will make for a
rather warm night tonight and one more very warm and breezy day
on Monday. Areas of dense fog are again likely tonight along
the south coast of RI and MA. Showers and a few thunderstorms
will accompany the front late Monday afternoon and Monday night.
High pressure settles in Tuesday and Wednesday with mild days
and cool nights. Swells from Jerry will cause increased rip
current risk along the coast especially Monday through
Wednesday. Another front approaches Thursday into Thursday
evening, with dry conditions returning Friday.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/...

Highlights...

* Showers linger across eastern areas through mid morning
Tuesday
* Dry conditions and mild temperatures through mid week
* A cold front crosses Thursday into Thursday evening
* Some showers may approach with another front sometime next weekend

Regional Weather Discussion ...

Manchester NH —

Welcome to Autumn New Hampshire! The warmer than average temperatures (and some humidity) will last for one more afternoon before we get back to weather more typical for the season we are entering.
Today looks hazy, warm and humid with a shower or storm in the afternoon up north or anywhere across New Hampshire late in the day and tonight. After some sun to start, clouds will build in through afternoon as well. Highs will be mainly in the 80s before the front arrives tonight.

The showers signal a chance to a more seasonable stretch starting Tuesday (with partly sunny skies) and lasting the rest of the week. Another front arrives later on Thursday with a passing shower possible. Otherwise, highs will be mostly in the 70s this week with a lower humidity level.

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