Thinking TD 8, NHC said it already has some inner core features.

I went with 9 because my feeling before the season started was that Helene would be the highest impact storm of the season, possibly the strongest, and would get into the Caribbean. 9 is the one looking most likely to do this, so I went with that.
Because of this, I'm hoping that 8 gets named Helene and I'm wrong.

I do kind of think that they are both going to get named at the same time though, so does anyone know how that works? Will 8 get Helene due to getting numbered first, or do they go off what system they think achieved storm status first?

Eight, mainly because it seems far more organized already, and has more model support for quicker strengthening.

Clearly, this poll should be closed within in a couple hours' time, and not tomorrow afternoon. But I'm guessing there's a minimum period of 24 hours set for polls. (I haven't created a poll on S2K for a while. So, I don't know.)

Yes,all polls dont close for example on 6 hours or 12 hours but begin the period of closings from 24 hours and beyond.

I think 8. The NHC even mentioned the possibility for RI in the discussion.

And the potential Caribbean cruiser will be our "I" storm of the year...
