Though the Leonid meteor storm period is over now, we provide in this paper predictions for 2003, from three models. It turns out that even if no storm is expected, activity from old trails (14 or more revolutions old) will be observable. In particular the 1499 trail will provide enhanced activity on 2003 November 13 UT with ZHR estimated at about 100. Further minor enhancements are predicted on November 19 at around 07h-08h UT and at other times from November 19 to 22, making the longest expected Leonid meteor shower.
