Tropical Storm Nana has weakened

Tropical Storm Nana is forecast to become a tropical depression over the next couple of hours as it journeys westward over Central America.

At 11 am EDT, the centre of Nana was located inland over Guatemala about 125 miles (200 km) north of Guatemala City.

The US National Hurricane Centre said Nana is moving toward the west near 15 mph (24 km/h), and a westward to west-south-westward motion is expected through Friday night.

On the forecast track, the centre of Nana will move over northern Guatemala and south-eastern Mexico today and tonight, then move over the Gulf of Tehuantepec on Friday.

Nana’s maximum sustained winds are near 45 mph (75 km/h) with higher gusts.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles (75 km) from the centre.

Continued rapid weakening is forecast to take place, and Nana will likely become a remnant low on Friday.

Water levels along the Belize coast will gradually subside today.

The governments of Honduras and Guatemala have discontinued all coastal watches and warnings.
