According to WSI Meteorologist Dr. Todd Crawford: "After an unexpected change in pattern during late June towards more widespread below-normal temperatures across northern and eastern Europe, the pattern has reverted to the expected configuration of higher pressure to the north and lower pressure to the south. We currently expect this pattern of anomalous warmth across Scandinavia and slightly below-normal temperatures across southern Europe to continue into August, but there are some indications that this pattern will break and that cooler, wetter conditions may emerge across northwestern Europe. For now, we feel that this risk is limited but it certainly bears watching. Finally, some of the initial indicators are suggesting that a cold winter may be in store this year due to more frequent atmospheric blocking in the North Atlantic. However, there are still many other important factors that have not yet emerged and, due to these 'known unknowns', confidence in a winter forecast this far out is very low."
According to Chris Kostas, Senior Power & Gas Analyst at ESAI Power LLC: "In August, cooler-than-normal temperatures centered over PJM and MISO should soften power prices and implied market heat-rates. Northeast natural-gas prices (i e. Marcellus shaleshale gas region) should continue to run very soft compared to Henry Hub due to below-normal regional temperatures and increased production. Reduced weather-related demand should also allow natural-gas inventories to refill rapidly in August and decrease the deficit to last year's level. In Texas, warmer-than-normal August temperatures should help firm ERCOT power prices and implied market heat-rates."
Kostas noted: "Energy demand is expected to soften considerably in October due to moderating seasonal temperatures. Soft energy demand in the Northeast and Marcellus shaleshale gas regions should continue to pressure delivered natural-gas prices lower and help natural-gas inventories finish the injection season very strong. As a result of the relatively mild temperatures expected over the next three months, we are forecasting North America inventory levels will finish the injection season above 3,700 Bcf (and not far off last year's adjusted level of 3,809 Bcf). While natural gas prices are expected to finish the summer injection season relatively soft, October power prices and implied market heat-rates should be supported by seasonal generator maintenance."
"It's 'steady as she goes' with regards to expectations for the 2014 tropical season. We are already off to a relatively slow start, as it is quite likely that this year will be the first since 2009 to go into July without yet having a named storm. Tropical Atlantic surface temperatures also remain relatively cool relative to recent years. Finally, the first El Nino event in five years is progressing on schedule. The various dynamical and statistical models that we use remain in unusual agreement, predicting between 9-12 named storms, between 4-7 hurricanes, and between 2-3 major hurricanes this year. The lack of any significant changes during the last month dictate that we leave our forecast of 11 named storms, 5 hurricanes, and 2 major hurricanes as is."
