September 1, 2020

Tropical Storm Nana formed midday Tuesday in the Caribbean Sea south of Jamaica. This system poses no risk to the United States, but could bring some impacts to Central America and the Yucatán in the coming days.

NO CURRENT STORMS IN ATLANTIC BASIN

Tropical Storm Nana is expected to continue on a westward track and enter into the western Caribbean Sea late Tuesday. Heavy rainfall and gusty winds are expected to continue across Jamaica as the system moves just to the south of the island. Conditions will begin to deteriorating in parts of northern Nicaragua, Honduras, Belize, Guatemale, and the Yucatán by Wednesday. A Tropical Storm Watch has been issued for the northern coast of Honduras from Punta Patuca westward to the Guatemala-Honduras border, including Roatan Island and the Bay Islands of Honduras.

Tropical Storm Nana is the earliest "n" named storm on record. Hurricane Nate holds the previous record for the earliest occurrence of the fourteenth named storm, which formed on September 5th, 2005.
