This may be a shot in the dark, but I remember reading about an Atlantic tropical system (can't remember hurricane vs. tropical storm) some time ago that made one pass at the Southeastern United States (don't remember where landfall was made), and nearly dissipated. The NHC stopped issuing advisories on it and all that jazz, but the disturbance made it back to the Atlantic, where it ultimately regained tropical characteristics. IIRC, because it was the same system, the NHC renamed it with the name of the original storm, because the system was distinctly traceable all the way back.
Anyone know what his or her name was?
P.S. Also, for anyone else interested in hurricanes, feel free to turn this into a game of sorts, posting details of the storm, and letting other people guess. Seems kinda fun. I've always been completely fascinated by Mother Nature's worst. They have a kind of beauty and grace about them.
