Informal betting on strangest storm

I couldn't resist. What storm do you think will shred the rules of climatology the most? Please tell why, it makes it more fun.

This section is just for fun. There will likely be no winner. Because of this, you can bet on as many names as you want, but please do not cross out the names as they form, and please do not bet on a storm that has already formed. :)

and yes, I'm joining the bandwagon as well in predicting kenny becomes a cat 4 and is record-breaking in terms of strength. he then crosses into the (east) pacific from south africa (he goes to the atlantic first!), his true home and is still a cat 4 when he reaches there. §ÖñÖ ÇHÌ ñÖ §ÄÐÄMÈ JÖÖÖÖÖÖÖÖJÖ 13:04, July 28, 2018 (UTC)
