In Case You Were Wondering About This…

In case you were wondering…
IF Bonnie has a recognizable circulation (Tropical Depression), into the Pacific, and then regenerates, the name Bonnie will continue to be used by the National Hurricane Center.

If it falls apart to a disturbance, and then regenerates, then a Pacific cyclone name will be assigned. I must say, this makes scientific sense and it is something that comes up, although rarely. Since the mid-1800’s, only 19 storms have crossed from the Atlantic Basin into the Eastern pacific. The last one was Otto in 2016.
