Informal betting on strangest storm

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. ;)
