September natural gas traded higher during the early morning hours and registered a higher high in the process. This positive action builds on the positive momentum seen during yesterday's afternoon advance from a new 8 day low. Some of the early support maybe coming from a growing weather system near the Yucatan channel, which the National Hurricane Center indicates has an 80% chance of developing into a tropical cyclone. While this storm is expected to skirt key Gulf of Mexico operations, it serves as a reminder for an active 2011 hurricane season.
