On December 12, a tropical low formed in the Indian Ocean. It quickly moved westward and strengthened into Tropical Cyclone Mara. Mara then entered a period of rapid strengthening as she reached warm waters. Her peak intensity of 70 mph 10-min and 1-min winds made her a very strong category 2 cyclone or a very strong tropical storm. Soon afterward, Mara entered a region of colder waters and high wind shear and disintegrated. Mara stopped weakening as a tropical low and then slowly began extratropical transition which it completed on December 19. Mara caused no damage or deaths in the open waters of the Indian Ocean.
