The last two weeks of October may see temperatures in the eastern U.S. drop to below normal, forecasters said.

The forecast for Oct. 18 to Oct. 24 calls for below-normal temperatures from Texas to Maine, according to the U.S. Climate Prediction Center in Camp Springs, Maryland.

The cold snap may extend into November, said Jim Rouiller, senior energy meteorologist at Planalytics Inc. in Berwyn, Pennsylvania.

“There is a chance of a major pattern change in the later half of the month,” Rouiller said. “The potential is there for a significant cold-weather event.”

A cold snap may drive up the price of natural gas, used for heating. Moderate temperatures, a lack of hurricanes in the main production areas of the Gulf of Mexico and surplus inventories have helped drive natural gas prices down 35 percent this year.
