More than 22 days later, Nadine is no longer a tropical system.

In the National Hurricane Center's (NHC) 88th and final advisory, they are saying that Nadine is tied for the 2nd longest lasting Tropical Storm on record in the Atlantic Ocean. With a lifespan of 21.25 days, they say that it ties Ginger for that record. Overall, it ranks as the 5th longest lasting tropical cyclone. Ginger was a tropical cyclone for an astonishing 30 days.

After initially "dying out" on September 22nd, Nadine quickly came back to life just one date layer on the 23rd.

Another interesting note is that Nadine had a 12 day span between hurricane classifications. On the 16th, Nadine dropped below hurricane status, only to be upgraded back to a huricane on the 28th.
