Remnants of Isaac Lurk in Gulf

Posted: Updated:

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - If a remnant of Hurricane Isaac becomes a tropical system in the Gulf of Mexico - which forecasters say could happen - it would be a rare event.

 

In 2005, a remnant from a tropical depression that dissipated near Puerto Rico eventually became part of a new depression, which evolved into Hurricane Katrina.

 

National Hurricane Center forecaster Todd Kimberlain said Katrina was the only modern example he could find of a system's partial remains regenerating and getting a different tropical designation.

 

If the Gulf system becomes a tropical storm, it probably would be named Nadine. At midday Thursday, forecasters gave it a 40 percent chance of developing. An approaching cold front could influence its future.
