    Maxar’s updated six- to 10-day forecast, covering Christmas day through Dec. 29, showed a pattern change emerging “as a trough deepens from the northern to the eastern Pacific, effectively redirecting the air flow downstream from a warmer Pacific source region.

    “Still, the period starts with a widespread coverage of much and strong below normal temperatures in the Eastern half, with sub-zero lows in Chicago and teens in Atlanta and New York on day six,” the forecaster added. “Temperatures turn warmer from this point, with aboves expanding from West to Central and the East returning to normal late in the period.”


    EBW Analytics Group observed a 33 Bcf day/day decline in weather-driven demand expectations for the Dec. 30-Jan. 5 storage period based on the latest forecasts.

    “The ability of the market to see past the coming cold blast is central to the precipitous price decline,” EBW analyst Eli Rubin said. “Since Friday, the first week of January has transitioned from risks of extended, havoc-wreaking cold to a very balmy outlook” that would result in a sizable week/week drop-off in natural gas demand.

    Still, even as “seasonal risks have vastly diminished, the potential for profit-taking by shorts ahead of a still-substantial cold blast poses upside price risks ahead of the Christmas holiday weekend,” Rubin added.
