Meteorological History

Early on August 23, a tropical low was spotted near the African coast. It was given a 40% chance of development at the second advisory. The invest became a tropical depression on August 27, eventually becoming a tropical storm on October 28. It became a hurricane on August 29, and a major hurricane on August 31. Due to wind shear, the storm weakened back to a category 2 hurricane. After exiting the wind shear area, Nana reverted to a Category 3 hurricane, eventually becoming a Category 4 later on. Due to effects on land, the storm weakened but once again reattained category 4 intensity. Being extremely close to category 5 intensity, the storm weakened because of interactions of land to a category 1. Nana became extratropical on September 17 and fully dissipated on September 18.


On January 15, the WMO decided to retire the name Nana. It would be replaced with Nereid for the 2044 season.
