Natural Gas Prices Strengthen on Forecasts for Cold Weather Along the U.S. East Coast

Apr Nymex natural gas (NGJ19) this morning is up by +0.018 (+0.63%). Nat-gas prices are stronger and posted a 1-1/2 month nearest-futures high today on forecasts for colder-than-normal weather this week on the U.S East coast, which may further deplete already tight U.S. nat-gas supplies supply. Accuweather has forecast the low in New York city of 32 degrees Fahrenheit (0 degrees Celsius) on March 22, 3 degrees below normal. A decline in the dollar index to a 2-week low today is another supportive factor for nat-gas prices. Further upside may be limited on the outlook for warmer weather after NOAA forecasted above-normal temperatures across most of the northern U.S. from March 25-29. An increase in U.S. nat-gas output is another negative for prices after today's data showed U.S. lower-48-state nat-gas production at 83.915 bcf, up +4.7% y/y. In addition, the April-May nat-gas futures spread remained negative today and has been negative since Jan 30. A negative spread suggests nat-gas supplies will be ample by the end of the heating season. Nat-gas prices have underlying support from tight U.S. nat-gas supply. The EIA reported last Thursday that U.S. nat-gas inventories fell by -204 bcf in the week ended Mar 8, a much larger draw than the 5-year average of -99 bcf and a record drop for this time of year. U.S. nat-gas inventories continue to shrink as nat-gas stockpiles on Mar 8 stood at a 4-3/4 year low of 1.186 tcf, down -22.6% y/y and -32.4% below the 5-year average.
