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.

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:

1/24 -  4:07 PM:  We made it all the way to 23° today. The wind advisory has been cancelled. The will will remain below advisory criteria and slack off a bit tonight into Monday. Seasonably col;d Monday. The split flow will continue through this week with the storm track through the mid Atlantic region. For the most part we will remain seasonably cold with little in the way of precipitation. On Tuesday a weak area of low pressure will move south of the forecast area off the mid Atlantic coast. there is some indication that some snow showers might make it into the southwest portion of New Hampshire Tuesday afternoon and early Wednesday morning. Thursday another stronger area of low pressure moves off the Carolina coast. Behind this low pressure area an upper level low drops in from Canada with some very cold air for Friday and Saturday. Back to the football games. Stay tuned...

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
High pressure builds in tonight through Tuesday. Low pressure
will track to the south of New England Tuesday night and
Wednesday. Another storm will track south of the region Thursday
followed more cold air Friday through Sunday.

SYNOPSIS...MA
Cold and blustery weather continues this afternoon. Winds
slacken Monday as high pressure builds into Southern New
England. Though a couple periods of light snow are possible thru
midweek, seasonable and dry weather generally prevails. A
powerful area of low pressure near the mid- Atlantic waters on
Thursday may bring breezy conditions to southern parts of MA and
RI, though it looks to otherwise pass harmlessly to our south.
A brief shot of much colder air then filters in for late in the
week.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/...
Highlights...

* Light, decorative snow Tue/Tues nite for western MA/CT.

* Dry weather then prevails, but turning breezy on Thurs as a
powerful cyclone near the mid-Atlantic waters passes well to our
south.

* Much colder air for Fri/Sat, potentially with low wind chills.

1/24 -  9:04 AM:  The wind is howling outside my window this morning. Current temp 13° with a wind chill reading at 4°. Most locations were in the mid and upper teens, 6° in Albany NY. Atop Mount Washington it was -4° with winds gusting to 114 MPH. That puts the windchill at -43°. A low pressure area over the Gulf of St.. Lawrence paired with a high pressure area over Lake Erie are generating a robust pressure gradient and gusty northwesterly flow across the region this morning. Even overnight wind gusts to 30mph have been observed across the region at lower elevations, with Mount Washington reaching 150mph! Current temperatures near zero across the northern portion of the area are resulting in wind chills around 20 below and a Wind Chill Advisory will remain in effect through mid morning. Today won`t be much warmer than yesterday as far as temperatures go, with highs remaining in the mid 20s south to around 10 north. Northwesterly flow will continue through the day. By evening the low will finally begin to pull east allowing for the pressure gradient to relax and winds to start to calm overnight. Winds will decrease overnight tonight, although will stop short of being calm except in some isolated valleys. This will keep the temperatures similar to the past few nights, with a few pockets of below zero possible where the winds do manage to go calm. For Monday the high pressure will begin to build into the region and the core of the coldest air moves east allowing for the immediate coastline to approach the freezing mark. For Monday the high pressure will begin to build into the region and the core of the coldest air moves east allowing for the immediate coastline to approach the freezing mark. Monday night the first high pressure axis crosses through our area bringing potentially a chance for good radiational cooling conditions. However, a storm tracking to our south for Tuesday may bring cloud cover a bit early and prevent the better nighttime cooling conditions. Stay tuned.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
Cold high pressure builds in from the west today with northwest
winds gradually decreasing in strength through Monday. Low
pressure tracks to the south of New England on Tuesday, likely
keeping northern New England dry. Another storm tracks to the
south of New England on Thursday with more cold air dropping
into our area behind it.

SYNOPSIS...MA
Cold and blustery this morning with possible sub-zero wind
chills. Winds slacken Monday as high pressure builds into
Southern New England. Though a couple periods of light snow are
possible thru midweek, seasonable and dry weather generally
prevails. A powerful area of low pressure near the mid-
Atlantic waters on Thursday may bring breezy conditions to
southern parts of MA and RI, though it looks to otherwise pass
harmlessly to our south. A brief shot of much colder air then
filters in for late in the week.

LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/...
Highlights...

* Light, decorative snow Tue/Tues nite for western MA/CT.

* Dry weather then prevails, but turning breezy on Thurs as a
powerful cyclone near the mid-Atlantic waters passes well to our
south.

* Much colder air for Fri/Sat, potentially with low wind chills.

Regional Weather Discussion ...

Manchester NH:

Any early morning snow showers come to an end. Saturday will be a windy and very cold day with clouds and flurries far north and more sun to the south. Highs only near 10 far north to the mid 20s south but winds will make it feel much colder.

Wind Chill Advisory for northern Coos County Saturday night into Sunday morning for wind chills approaching -30. Be careful in that type of cold! The rest of us will see actual air temperatures in the single digits, but with wind chills it will feel subzero. Partly cloudy skies.
Sunny, but windy and cold on Sunday. Wind chills will be in the single digits much of the day. Bitter cold!

Less windy Monday so it won't feel as terribly cold. Highs in the upper 20s to low 30s. Sunny skies with late day clouds arriving south.

The next system will approach late Monday night into Tuesday but the track as of right now looks to take most, if not all, snow to our south. Stay tuned this weekend in case that track shifts a bit. Otherwise, enjoy the weekend and stay warm!

These "discussions" come from either me, WMUR weather center, or the NWS.
