Weather has been one of the largest variable for power, coal, and gas markets.  In the latest study available to PMA subscribers, each of the last 10 years of weather was put into our load and power model to deliver a concise view of the impact of weather.

The study individually graphed the variation of weather for both summer and winter impact.   The most volatile year happened to be 2010.
