Here’s a list of the upcoming storm names for the Atlantic and Pacific.
The Atlantic ones are most likely to make the news headlines…that’s because the direction they move in takes them towards populated places such as the United States of America, Mexico, Cuba and the Caribbean.
Eastern Pacific storms may affect western parts of Mexico but most form out at sea and because they travel eastwards they move away from land.
Atlantic names for 2009 (all still to be used)
Pacific names for 2009 (Names in bold have already formed)

Larry – (I thought Larry was used back in 2003??, & I did not think they could re-use the names for a few years/ never again???)
I think these names:
Could end up been used as names off a Hurricanes, as I think they would suite a Hurricane (They have a good ring to them eg: Hurricane Grace etc…)
This name would suite a decent Tropical Storm:
Danny eg: Tropical Storm Danny

Names are re-used if the storms weren’t too big. If they were devasting or Cat 5 they wont be used again…so names like Andrew, Katrina and probably Rita. In our neck of the woods we won’t get another Bola, Drena or Fergus.
But if the storms were minor then the name goes back in to the list again.

I want a hurricane/TC to be called STIG after the guy Micheal Shoemaker who drives those racing cars on Top Gear.
I reckon that Stig is an excellent name for a TC/Hurricane.
The name Stig came origionally from a Monty Python sketch.

I would like to see a hurricane/Tc called Hagalaz.
named after a Futhark Rune, it can mean -destruction, disaster, clearance, drastic change. Sudden loss, ordeal,
Quite appropriate I think.
