Will Hurricane Fred Re-Form?

An area of disturbed tropical weather in the western Atlantic (indicated by the 1 on the following satellite image) will be in a region where conditions will be favorable for development over the upcoming weekend, and it’s certainly close enough to the United States Coast to be worthy of monitoring.

Born Again Fred

If this system does develop in a tropical storm or hurricane, then it will be called Fred–not because they’re re-using names already, but because the swirl on the satellite image is what is left of what was once Hurricane Fred in the eastern Atlantic. Since it hasn’t changed basins, it would keep the same name.

Don’t be surprised if you hear about the re-birth of Fred this weekend.
