Strong Central US Storm, But Still Light National Demand Wed-Sat

Wednesday, December 26th:  Lighter than normal national demand will continue the next several days, even with a strong weather system moving out of the West and into the central US where heavy rain and snow is expected.  However, a consequence of this central US storm will be to pump a warm ridge of high pressure across the eastern US the next several days.  With temperatures of 20-25°F above normal extending from New England to the Gulf Coast, national demand will be lighter than normal.  Demand will finally increase this weekend into the start of the New Year as a glancing shot of frigid Canadian air sweeps across the northeastern US.  A more impressive shot of colder air across the northern US is expected Jan 1-3.

 

Glancing shot of cold air across the northeastern US Dec 29-30.
