Northeast Cold, Storm May Leave Snow From N.Y. to Boston

Don't Miss Out —

March 30 (Bloomberg) -- Cool weather will linger in the U.S. Northeast through the weekend, while storms may leave a dusting or more of snow on Boston and the area northwest of New York City.

As much as 5 inches (13 centimeters) of snow may fall in Monticello, New York, 75 miles north-northwest of Manhattan, through the weekend, according to the National Weather Service. Boston may have falling snow without any accumulation.

Commodities traders watch temperature predictions to gauge energy use and demand. About 51 percent of U.S. households use natural gas for heating, according to the Energy Department.

Demand for home heating fuel may be normal in eastern New England, including Boston and Providence, Rhode Island, through April 6, said David Salmon, owner of Weather Derivatives in Belton, Missouri.

The rest of the Northeast may use 10 percent to 30 percent less than normal, Salmon said in an outlook today.

The forecast for New York City is for rain through tomorrow with highs of about 45 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit (7 to 10 Celsius), according to Rob Carolan of Hometown Forecast Services Inc. in Nashua, New Hampshire.

While cooler weather persists in the Northeast, the Midwest, Great Plains and South may all be 8 to 14 degrees above normal, said MDA EarthSat Weather in Gaithersburg, Maryland.

Warmer weather is expected to continue in the Midwest and Mississippi River Valley through April 8, according to MDA’s 6-to 10-day forecast.

The East Coast from Maine to Florida is expected to have seasonal temperatures from April 4 to April 8, while the West Coast drops 3 to 4 degrees below normal, MDA said.

In New York, the normal average temperature for April 3 is 48, according to MDA. It’s 44 in Boston, 45 in Chicago, 53 in St. Louis, 59 in Atlanta, 62 in Dallas, 67 in Houston, 49 in Seattle and 60 in Burbank, California.
