If a strong clipper like this were to verify, along with the nickel/dime events preceding it, the impending cold outbreak could be pretty special with a decent snowpack to work with.

Hopefully not colder than the current one lol. Though I guess it's a good trade if it keeps our snowpack for more than 3 days lol.

All too often for my liking, a strong clipper like this shows up with a southern track in the mid-range only to slowly shift north with time...So many times the I-70 corridor(or further south) will be in the clipper bullseye in this time frame & the jackpot ends up being the I-80/90 corridor.

I’ve seen it both ways.  Last storm was I80 and north at day 6.  I’m in southern Indiana and picked up 7”.

For sure - though, I wouldn't call the last storm a 'clipper' by any means.

ECM has done work to do to come south enough to tap respectable moisture  like the gfs is showing

Fwiw 0Z icon took the southern route and it looks like the 06Z was trying to head that way as well.

The cold pool/500 MB trough axis extending from the deep upper level
low over Ontario will move overhead on Sunday, with what looks to be
a stronger clipper arriving on Monday. Euro and other models have
been consistent with this system for several cycles now, and with
favorable thermal profiles and high snow to liquid ratios, a
significant snowstorm appears possible.

From DTX this morning. Pretty strong wording 5 days out from a rather conservative office.

Well looky-there, LOL - still a long way to go, but these strong clippers shift north so often like this. I'm betting on this being an I-80/90 jackpot.

I know we're days away but I'm banking on this to rebuild our lost snow cover. Clipper for the win? :classic_unsure:
