Let’s talk about the weather so far this year (or lack thereof). For the first 12 days of 2020 in our hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, we had the 11th warmest start on record. Most of Pennsylvania saw temperatures last Saturday averaging 20 - 30 degrees higher than normal. This is not welcomed news to the energy industry, which obviously loves to sell fuel in the wintertime to keep us warm. Despite the warm start, it looks like cooler-than-average temperatures are on the way over the next two weeks, including the possibility of the first significant snowstorm of the year during the weekend.
Many will be hitting the road sometime today for Thanksgiving, unfortunately storms are heading in and could potentially cause travel disruptions. Heavy snow has already caused cancellations at the Denver airport and there is a high risk of mudslides in portions of California.
