Tropical Depression Nora dissipated southeast of the Hawaiian islands on Thursday morning, forecasters say, and it is unlikely to redevelop back into a storm. (more)





"Nora has given in to persistent and debilitating southwesterly shear, and visible satellite imagery indicates that the low-level circulation is no longer identifiable," said a forecaster with the Central Pacific Hurricane Center. "Since the cyclone center has dissipated, and shear will remain sufficiently strong to preclude redevelopment, this will be the final advisory on the remnants of Nora."

Nora had maximum sustained winds of 30 miles (45 kilometers) per hour when it dissipated about 250 miles (400 kilometers) southeast of Hilo. The Central Pacific Hurricane Center put the chance of redevelopment at 0 percent.

Earlier this week, Nora was still a tropical storm and heading right for Hawaii, but forecasters had always expected for the system to turn away from the islands in time.
