Heating Degree Days: Last Week Colder than Normal, Forecast Colder than Normal

Last week was cooler than forecast, and cooler than normal.  As spring approaches, normal HDDs are falling off quickly.

Last week (thru Sat) turned in 152 HDD vs normal of 141 HDD and last year 176 HDD
Forecast is for 156 HDD this week, vs normal of 128 HDD and last year 148 HDD

It implies another two weeks of sizeable withdrawals from natural gas storage before injections begin during the gas week ended April 3rd.
