    Not many changes, but what I do see; there should be a slightly different evolution based on H5. Might not be too shabby!

    Like I said, any of us southwest of NC are going to need that GOM tap, which the Euro did have as possible. Maybe west of SC actually, let me look again.

    WINTER MISCHIEF NEXT WEEK? Monday will be dry with a high in the upper 40s, but a clipper type system will arrive Tuesday with a fresh supply of very cold air. Global models are suggesting some Gulf moisture could become involved in this, with potential for some light accumulating snow over a decent part of Alabama. The GFS even hints some snow could fall as far south as Mobile, Fairhope, and Gulf Shores by Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning.

    The ensemble mean from the reliable European global model is showing about one inch of snow for North/Central Alabama, with potential for heavier amounts in a few spots to the south, where moisture will be deeper. Needless to say, it is way too early for a specific forecast on snow amounts and impact, but just be aware of the potential.

    Absolutely. Anybody hoping for a big hit with the clipper only are setting themselves up for probable heartbreak.

    Wow, still looks great for NC. GFS is being consistent with that.

    Looking out further ahead, I'm now watching the Happy Hour run to see if that Arctic high of the 12Z run that comes down here 1/22 does the same on this run.

    Yeah if you get a dusting to half inch down here that is a big win. 1" would be.............

    This comes to about 3 feet of 5 day bulls-eye snow for me... what could possibly go wrong? [​IMG]

    For sure not looking for a big hit out of this setup. But I'll sure as hell take an inch with temps in the 20s

    I can honestly never remember a clipper producing any type of measurable snowfall in my area, but there's always a first time for everything.

    Yeah, we all know clippers are anemic. WRAL mentioned it but said not to expect much if anything, as if we were....its a clipper for goodness sakes.

    They wouldn't say anything more no matter what this far out.

    The clipper of 95 produced towering cumulonimbus clouds that gave a brief, but heavy burst of snow that gave a dusting here in Chatham/Orange. With a clipper, that's what you get.

    Thing is, there's late bloomer potential when you get to the Carolinas. It's not just a clipper.

    Like 1300 said, this is not your run of the mill clipper.

    Hopefully it can spawn a L somewhere.
