The first push of cold air is moving into the Northwest, Rockies, Plains and Midwest now and will reach the East Coast this weekend. A second, much more powerful Arctic air mass will plunge into the Rockies, Plains and Midwest early next week, reaching the East later next week. Strong cold in the West will be easing up gradually and by the end of next week, coastal areas will average near to above normal, but the interior areas will stay below normal.


Current weather models show much colder U.S. temperatures ahead, which are likely to be accompanied by a significant tightening in domestic gas-market fundamentals as prompt month futures have risen from mid-$5/MMBtu in early December.
