Another spring storm will be tracking slowly across the eastern US today with moderate to heavy showers and thunderstorms along the cold front and some light snowfall into the colder air over the Ohio Valley and New England, NatGasWeather.com reported on April 7. The storm will sweep through the eastern US Tuesday and Wednesday, bringing colder-than-normal temperatures deep into the US Southeast, which will lead to several days of strong natural gas and heating demand.
High pressure formation will rapidly build into the central and eastern US late in the week, pushing temperatures into the 70s and 80s in the Plains and the South and 60s in much of the Midwest and Northeast.
However, cold blasts will return in the US around April 13-17th, as cold Canadian air moves back in the US territory, bringing significant surge in natural gas and heating demand.
