during the next 24 hours in the indicated locations. For a

depiction of areas at risk, please see the National Weather

Service Storm Surge Watch/Warning Graphic, available at

This is a life-threatening situation. Persons

located within these areas should take all necessary actions to

protect life and property from rising water and the potential for

other dangerous conditions. Promptly follow evacuation and other

instructions from local officials.

A Hurricane Warning means that hurricane conditions are expected

DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK

----------------------

At 1000 PM CDT (0300 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Hanna was

located near latitude 27.1 North, longitude 94.8 West. Hanna is

moving toward the west near 8 mph (13 km/h) and this motion should

continue through Saturday morning. A gradual turn toward the

west-southwest is expected Saturday night and that motion should

continue through Sunday. On the forecast track, the center of Hanna

should make landfall along the Texas coast within the hurricane

warning area Saturday afternoon or early evening.

Maximum sustained winds are near 65 mph (100 km/h) with higher

gusts. Additional strengthening is forecast, and Hanna is expected

to become a hurricane before the cyclone makes landfall on

Saturday. Rapid weakening is expected after Hanna moves inland.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles (130 km)

from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure based on data from the NOAA

Hurricane Hunters is 992 mb (29.30 inches).

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND

----------------------

Key messages for Hanna can be found in the Tropical Cyclone

Discussion under AWIPS header MIATCDAT3 and WMO header WTNT43 KNHC.

STORM SURGE: The combination of a dangerous storm surge and the

tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by

rising waters moving inland from the shoreline. The water could

reach the following heights above ground somewhere in the indicated

areas if the peak surge occurs at the time of high tide...

Baffin Bay to Sargent TX...including Corpus Christi Bay, Copano Bay,

Aransas Bay, San Antonio Bay, and Matagorda Bay...3 to 5 ft

Mouth of the Rio Grande to Baffin Bay TX...1 to 3 ft

North of Sargent to High Island TX...including Galveston Bay...1 to

2 ft

The deepest water will occur along the immediate coast near and to

the right of the landfall location. Surge-related flooding depends

on the relative timing of the surge and the tidal cycle, and can

vary greatly over short distances. For information specific to your

area, please see products issued by your local National Weather

Service forecast office.

WIND: Hurricane conditions are expected in the warning area

Saturday afternoon. Tropical storm conditions are expected to begin

in the warning area by Saturday morning.

RAINFALL: Hanna is expected to produce 5 to 10 inches of rain with

isolated maximum totals of 15 inches through Sunday night in south

Texas and into the Mexican states of Coahuila, Nuevo Leon, and

northern Tamaulipas. This rain may result in life-threatening flash

flooding, rapid rises on small streams, and isolated minor to

moderate river flooding in south Texas.

Along the upper Texas and Louisiana coasts 3 to 5 inches of rain is

expected.

SURF: Swells generated by Hanna are expected to increase and affect

much of the Texas and Louisiana coasts during the next couple of

days. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip

current conditions. Please consult products from your local weather

office.

TORNADOES: A brief tornado or two will be possible across portions

of the Texas coast, beginning Saturday morning.
