Nadine is a storm that came back to life and just won't die over the Central Atlantic.
The reborn tropical system become a hurricane once again as of Friday, Sept. 28, 2012.
Even though the system was downgraded to a tropical storm, it could remain a tropical system through the middle of this week.
Nadine, or the circulation from Nadine, formed the same day of the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks on the United States embassy in Cairo, Egypt, and the consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
Nadine was first named a tropical storm on Sept. 12, the day after a circulation was acknowledged.
Nadine has certainly had its ups and downs since then. After becoming a hurricane for the first time on Sept. 15, it transitioned to non-tropical system on Sept. 21. On Sept. 24, the system regained tropical status.

The system has almost completed a large loop over the Central Atlantic, and it is possible that it will swing close enough to bother the Azores all over again later this week.
As of Sept. 30, Nadine has been a tropical depression or stronger for approximately 18 days.
The longest-lived tropical cyclone (a tropical depression, tropical storm or hurricane) in the Atlantic Basin on record is Hurricane San Ciriaco of 1899 with a lifespan of 28 days. Hurricane Ginger of 1971 was a close second with 27.25 days.
San Ciriaco, like Nadine, also had a period of where it was not considered to be a tropical system and then regenerated. However, it is Ginger that has the Atlantic consecutive-day record.
1994's John in the Pacific holds the global upper hand with a tropical cyclone duration record of 31 days. John wandered the northeast and northwest Pacific basins exchanging hurricane/typhoon designations.
Nadine is not likely to break Ginger's or San Ciriaco's records or to survive until Halloween.
Meteorologists in the AccuWeather.com Hurricane Center expect Nadine to be captured and torn up by a non-tropical storm system, projected to move over the North Atlantic later this week.
Prior to this, squalls and rough seas may again visit the Azores Wednesday into Thursday as Nadine begins a northward turn.
Beyond the Azores, there is a chance Nadine, as a remnant low pressure area could be flung across part of the United Kingdom over the weekend.
Nadine is considered to be a Cape Verde system as it had its origins near the group of islands by the same name, just off the west coast of Africa.
Following a chilly start to the week, warmer weather and sunshine will make a return to the Chicago area over the next several days.
A brief period of tranquil weather will occur across the United Kingdom and neighboring northern Europe during the middle of the week.
The weather pattern that delivered drenching rain and flooding to Texas and the southern Plains during May will soak the Southeast states for the next week or two.
Accompanying the start of Meteorological Summer will be wet weather and the risk of flooding in the Northeast as well as unseasonably cool conditions in New England.
The month of June is underway and will begin with seasonable weather for the Bay Area.
