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.

What the Forecast for an Active Hurricane Season Means for the Atlantic Region

How often do early tropical storms or hurricanes hit the continental US?

Accuweather "Ups" it's hurricane foreccast estimates.

The 2020 season follows four straight years during which there were at least two U.S.-landfalling hurricanes, with Barry and Dorian striking in 2019.
That’s the longest streak since 1947-50 and only twice since 1851 has the streak reached at least five years (1932-36 and 1876-82).

Rich's Local Weather Discussion:

8/13 -  6:10 PM:  Skies should clear out tonight. This should set up another good radiational cooling night...with temps falling to near 50 in the Northern valleys. We'll be in the upper 50s and low 60s in Southern NH tonight. Fairly seasonable temps are expected Fri. with plenty of lower 80s to mid 80s in the warm spots. Much like this time yesterday, the long term continues to look rather quiet, at least as far as impactful weather is concerned. Near normal temperatures this weekend and early next week will give way to slightly above average temperatures toward the mid-week. The only significant precipitation in the forecast is possible late Sunday through early Tuesday as a slow moving frontal system is expected to slog through New England. Stay tuned. Expect the regular Thursday evening "Weekend Outlook" e-mail in your box this evening. Subscribe here.
Tropical Storm Josephine has formed in the Atlantic. See the "Tropics" panel about. Maps and tracking page will be up tomorrow. Looks like this one will curve away from New England.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
It`ll be another warm day today, but with much less humidity.
The temperature will cool off at night and then gradually cool
through the weekend as high pressure builds into the Canadian
Maritimes. A slow moving frontal system could bring rain early
next week.

SYNOPSIS...MA
It will remain quite warm into Friday, but less humid as the
frontal boundary pushes south of New England. High pressure
building across the Canadian Maritimes will result in cooler
temperatures this weekend especially across eastern
Massachusetts. Low pressure may bring a period of showers
sometime Sunday into Monday if it tracks close enough to the
region. Regardless, expect mainly dry and seasonably warm
afternoons Tuesday through Thursday.

8/13 -  6:14 AM:  Much cooler outside this morning. High pressure to our north will remain in control of the weather today with plenty of sunshine and light winds expected. Mostly sunny and warm today. With light winds expected we should see a sea breeze develop along the coast this afternoon. It will be a bit delayed, though, considering water temperatures are near their annual peak and thus the temperature gradient will not be as high as earlier in the season. However, we should see this bring a shift in wind direction, slight decrease in temperature, and increase in dew point to the entire coastline this afternoon. Mostly calm conditions overnight with dry air in place will lead to a good cool down for most. 50s should be widespread with some northern valleys dropping into the 40s. Warmer southern towns may still hold in the 60s. Friday will be another nice day but several degrees cooler than today. Still should see widespread temperatures in the 80s. An upper trough drops south through the Canadian Maritimes extending westward into northern New England, but the lack of moisture will make it difficult for showers to form. Stay tuned.
Expect the regular Thursday evening "Weekend Outlook" e-mail in your box tomorrow. Subscribe here.
A new tropical depression has formed in the Atlantic. See the "Tropics" panel above. This is another storm we need to keep an eye on.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
It`ll be another warm day today, but with much less humidity.
The temperature will cool off at night and then gradually cool
through the weekend as high pressure builds into the Canadian
Maritimes. A slow moving frontal system could bring rain early
next week.

SYNOPSIS...MA
It will remain quite warm today and Friday, but less humid as
the frontal boundary pushes south of New England. High pressure
building across the Canadian Maritimes will result in cooler
temperatures this weekend especially across eastern New England.
Low pressure may bring a period of showers sometime Sunday into
Monday if it tracks far enough north. Regardless, expect mainly
dry and seasonably warm afternoons Tuesday and Wednesday.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...

Highlights...

* Cooler this weekend especially across eastern New England

* Best chance for a period of showers will be sometime Sun into Mon
if low pressure tracks far enough north

* Mainly dry and seasonably warm afternoons next Tue into Wed

Regional Weather Discussion ...

Manchester NH:

The higher heat and humidity will continue to ease over the next couple of days, then a cooler stretch follows heading into the weekend.
Today will be bright, still very warm but less humid. Highs will fade from the 80s just about statewide this afternoon, then down into the 70s to lower 80s (coolest at the coastline) for Friday, also with fair skies.

The weekend is looking pretty good as well. Mixed skies are expected Saturday with highs ranging from the low to mid 70s near the coast to either side of 80 inland. There could be a general increase in clouds Sunday ahead of our next rain chance arriving later Sunday or Monday.
