Monday, February 11:  Going into the weekend break, we thought the data favored milder trends for this week, but with colder risks after. The weather data obliged by losing several HDD’s for this week in most datasets, seeing milder breaks between cold shots, especially over the southern and eastern US. However, the data was notably colder trending for next weekend and the following week, Feb 16-23rd adding more than 10 HDD’s in both the GFS and European models. The first several images below highlight conditions not quite cold enough this week due to a mix of cold shots but mild breaks in between, especially across the southern and eastern US.  However,  the last images highlights a stronger cold shot this coming weekend across the northern US for as swing back to strong national demand as lows behind the cold front drop into the -20s to 20s, including 20s and 30s into portions of Texas and the southern US.

This image shows strong cold shots into the northern US late this week through the coming weekend.
