Tropical Depression Eight has officially been upgraded to Tropical Storm Hanna. The National Hurricane Center published the first forecast for the newly formed tropical storm at 10pm Thursday.

Hurricane Hunters spent Thursday evening flying through the storm. By late in the evening, a sustained, 10-second wind speed just above the 39mph criteria for tropical storm status was found. As of the 10pm hour, here is the latest on this tropical storm:

  • Maximum Sustained Wind: 40 mph
  • Movement: west-northwest at 7 mph
  • Minimum Central Pressure: 1002 mb
  • Tropical-storm-force wind extended outward up to 25mph from the center

Other than an upgrade in strength, the official forecast cone has shifted further south. Landfall for the center of Hanna is now expected just south of Corpus Christi around midday Saturday. Peak wind speed could climb as high as 65mph.

Tropical Storm Warnings have been extended southward from Port Mansfield, Texas to the mouth of the Rio Grande.
