Track forecast for TD 15
The model forecasts on Saturday morning were in better agreement than on Friday, predicting that TD 15 would be steered west-northwest at speeds ranging from 10 – 20 mph through Thursday, bringing the storm through the Lesser Antilles Islands on Tuesday morning, to the vicinity of the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico by Wednesday morning, and near the Dominican Republic by Thursday morning. Beyond Thursday, the path of TD 15 will depend, in part, upon what Jose is up to. If Jose is still wandering off the U.S. New England coast, this will create a weakness in the ridge of high pressure steering TD 15 to the west-northwest, and TD 15 will turn more toward the northwest or north-northwest. If Jose is out of the picture, the ridge could keep TD 15 rolling west-northwestward. In either case, it is possible that TD 15 will approach the U.S. East Coast more than a week from now. A strong autumn-like upper-level trough will be moving across the western and central U.S. late in the week. This will tend to pump up a ridge toward the northeast U.S. and northwest Atlantic, which could end up blocking TD 15 from moving out to sea.

I don't understand -
If there was a tropical storm "Maria" in 2011, how can there be one with the same name now?
I thought the names were 'retired' once they had been used?
