Monday:  Weather systems will impact the NW & NE US today and Tuesday with showers and cooling. This will still be followed Wed-Sun by warm high pressure gaining ground over the southern and eastern US to produce widespread highs of 70s to lower 90s, including near 80°F into major Northeast cities such as Washington D.C. and NYC.  A trough of low pressure is still expected to set up over the west-central US this week into next with areas of rain and high elevation snow, which will result in slightly cool conditions and light late season demand for heating.  Image shows highs Tuesday with light heating demand across the W-C & NE US and light cooling demand over the southern US to combine for MODERATE overall.

 

Monday: We went into the weekend break expecting slightly stronger than normal demand to open the week as several weather systems sweep across the country, which has been maintained with little changes. This will still be followed Wed-Sun by warm high pressure gaining ground over the southern and eastern US to produce widespread highs of 70s to lower 90s, including near 80°F into major Northeast cities such as Washington D.C. and NYC. This period overall has trended a touch hotter to add a couple CDD’s. At the same time, a trough of low pressure is still expected to set up over the west-central US this week into next with areas of rain and high elevation snow, which will result in slightly cooler than normal conditions and light late season demand for heating.
