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:

11/14 - 6:30 AM: High pressure has crested over New England and is slowly moving offshore this morning. Some record low temps were set last night. Peterborough, NH is currently at 15° after a low of 12°. I think the air flow from the south has begun ahead of a cold front later Friday, so temps will rise into the mid 30s today with calm winds. Today will feel much better than yesterday but we'll still be at least 10° below normal averages. Any early sun will be obscured by clouds as the morning progresses. Perhaps a few snow showers in the mountains today. Temps will be closer to normal on Friday as another arctic cold front approaches the region later in the day. Once that front passes, expect a cold weekend, but temps do moderate next week. Models also show an offshore low early next week. I will be watching, but at the moment, the low stays far enough offshore to miss us. A second ocean storm may affect the region by mid week. Stay tuned.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
High pressure will crest over New England tonight with dry
conditions and very cold air over the region. Conditions remain
generally dry through Thursday with only light snow showers
possible. While Friday looks warmer, it is short-lived with an
outbreak of Arctic- sourced air behind a cold front late in the
day. Below normal temperatures stick around through the weekend
with a warm trend and return of active weather next week.

SYNOPSIS...MA
High pressure centered over eastern New England will move off
the coast, allowing temperatures to moderate today, but they
will still be below normal for the middle of November. Even
milder weather is forecast for Friday, but then another strong
cold front will deliver unseasonably cold temperatures Friday
night through Saturday night. An ocean storm may impact the
region Sunday night into Monday with another storm possibly
affecting the region Tuesday night into Wednesday.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
Highlights...

* Turning much colder again Fri night into Sat night
* An ocean storm may impact SNE Sun night/Mon with rain and coastal
wind along with pockets of ice across the interior

11/13 -  5:55 PM:  The low this morning, here in Peterborough, NH, was 12°. Tonight, we'll drop to 6°, but with out any wind. We'll probably set a few record low temps before the clouds begin to move in towards morning. A mostly cloudy, not as cold day, ahead for Thursday with highs in the mid 30s. Not as cold Thursday night, and on Friday, temps will rise to near normal temps for this time of year, in the mid 40s. By later Friday another cold front will be approaching New England. Colder air, but not as cold as this current outbreak, moves in for Friday night and the weekend. Long range charts suggest the polar vortex will retrograde northwest, closer to the north pole, and that will bring more seasonable temps back to New England. Models also show an offshore low early next week. I will be watching, but at the moment, the low stays far enough offshore to miss us. Stay tuned.

High pressure building in from the west will become centered
over New England tonight. It will bring record cold temperatures
today, along with gusty winds this morning. As the high moves
off the coast, temperatures begin to moderate on Thursday, but
will still be below normal for the middle of November. Even
milder weather is forecast for Friday, but then another strong

Regional Weather Discussion ...

Manchester NH —
Temperatures at or below normal continue as we have mainly fair skies heading into the weekend.

After a bitterly cold start Thursday with some record lows set, we’ll see clouds increase with a few afternoon and evening flurries possible in the northern half of NH. Highs will be back into the 30s with a light SE breeze.
Partly sunny skies and milder temperatures, 40s for most, are expected for Friday before another arctic front arrives Friday night. That front will trigger a late-day snow shower on Friday in northern NH and a possible flurry or brief snow shower anywhere Friday evening.

That will send temperatures back into the 30s for the weekend, Saturday with full sunshine and a brisk northerly breeze, and partial sunshine on Sunday.

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