Temperatures to Reach Into the 90s in East, Rogers Says

June 21 (Bloomberg) -- Temperatures are expected to push into the 90s from Chicago to Boston, including New York, during the next five days, said Matt Rogers, president of Commodity Weather Group LLC.

Readings may be at least 5 degrees Fahrenheit (2.8 Celsius) above normal today until June 25 from Nebraska to the Canadian Maritimes, said Rogers, in Bethesda, Maryland.

“We have Boston and New York City in the low 90s at the peak of the event” early next week, he said.

Above-average temperatures in large population areas of the East and Midwest can spur natural gas demand as more people turn to air conditioning to keep cool. Power plants will account for 32 percent of U.S. gas consumption this year, Energy Information Administration data show.

Temperatures in New York’s Central Park are expected to reach 90 on June 24 and June 25, according to the National Weather Service. In Boston’s Back Bay, readings may climb to 90 on June 25.

Chicago may peak at 91 on June 23 and Washington is likely to reach that mark from June 23 to 25, the weather service said. Montreal may top out at 91 on June 25, according to Environment Canada.

Temperatures in the eastern U.S. and Canada are expected to fall to seasonal ranges from June 26 to June 30, Rogers said.

The normal average reading for June 26 in New York City is about 75 degrees, according to MDA Weather Services in Gaithersburg, Maryland. In Boston, it’s 71; in Chicago, 73; in Houston, 84; in St. Louis, 79; and in Burbank, California, 72.
