MIAMI - The cyclone formerly known as Tropical Storm Nadine has dissolved after meandering for more than 21 days, falling short of the all-time Atlantic Ocean longevity record of nearly 28 days.

The National Hurricane Center issued its last bulletin for Nadine on Thursday morning. Forecasters had a little fun with the storm in the final advisory, saying: "Bye Bye Nadine ... What a long strange trip it's been."

Nadine tied 1971's Ginger for second place on the list of longest-lasting cyclones of at least tropical storm strength. The record is held by an unnamed storm from 1899, which hung around for nearly 28 days.

Nadine mostly spun harmlessly out at sea. Its remnants had gale-force winds of about 40 mph near the Azores island chain east of Portugal. It never threatened the U.S.
