Could Hurricane Florence redevelop?

Some of the models are showing Hurricane Florence redeveloping into a tropical storm, or even a hurricane after it emerges off of the east coast in another day and a half.  At the current moment Florence still has a circulation, and once it is back over the warmer waters of the Atlantic it has a chance of becoming a tropical storm, or even a hurricane again.  All that the storm requires is enough of a difference between surface temperatures and the cloud top temperatures to maintain rapid convection and it is possible that the storm could once again become a contender in the ocean!
