From The Weather Center:

WeatherBrains 101: The 2018 hurricane season in the Atlantic Basin is fast approaching, so that means that some administrative work must be done. One of those items is a review of the previous season and a look at the need to retire storm names for storms that were so deadly or costly to make their continued use inappropriate. So in this episode of 101 we take a look at the names being retired and their replacements.
