September natural gas appears to be in the process of consolidating its recent downdraft. Some traders pointed to a level of support for the natural gas market coming in at the July low of around $2.705. Meanwhile, US weather maps have taken a cooler track, with below normal expected across the center of the country for the August 19th to August 23 time frame. Regarding tropical storm activity, there is one wave expected to cross central-America later today and poses little threat to key Gulf of Mexico natural gas operations.
