U.S. East Coast May End November With Chilly Weather

Nov. 16 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. East Coast will close out November with seasonal or slightly cooler than normal weather while the southwestern states warm up.

MDA EarthSat Weather predicts that the Northeast and mid-Atlantic regions will have seasonal temperatures Nov. 26-30, while Florida, Georgia and South Carolina dip 3 to 4 degrees Fahrenheit (1.7 to 2.2 Celsius) below normal.

The Southwest is expected to be 5 to 7 degrees above normal for the period, according to Gaithersburg, Maryland-based MDA.

“The end result is a pattern not unlike that average pattern the past couple of months, with most stable warmth in the Southwest, marginal cold in the Southeast, and variability from the Midwest to Northeast,” MDA said.

November is the start of the heating season that runs until March, when the most natural gas traditionally is consumed in the U.S. Cooler-than-normal weather in the high-population areas of the East Coast and Midwest helps boost demand for energy to heat homes and businesses.

U.S. gas stockpiles fell 18 billion cubic feet in the week ended Nov. 9, the earliest decline for a heating season since 2007, after expanding to a record 3.929 trillion cubic feet the previous week, an Energy Department report yesterday showed.

Natural gas for December delivery has advanced 20 cents, or 5.7 percent, to $3.703 per million British thermal units so far this week in New York. The futures are up 8.8 percent from a year ago.
