HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Tropical Depression Nora has dissipated, according to forecasters with the Central Pacific Hurricane Center.

Forecasters said at 11 a.m. Thursday, the remnants of Nora were located about 250 miles southeast of Hilo.

The remnants were moving toward the west-northwest near 7 miles per hour.

The former tropical storm has given in to persistent and debilitating southwesterly shear and is no longer identifiable in satellite imagery.

Deep tropical moisture associated with Nora will move over the Big Island Thursday and then continue westward over the rest of the state over the next few days, increasing humidity levels and boosting the chance of showers, especially for windward areas of the islands.

Nora was the 14th tropical storm of the Eastern North Pacific hurricane season.
