Despite being poorly organised it seems that TD8 has been born of 91L. A broad wave in the Gulf Of Mexico heading for the Texas coast.

000 WTNT43 KNHC 230840 TCDAT3 Tropical Depression Eight Discussion Number 2 NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL082020 400 AM CDT Thu Jul 23 2020

Satellite images and surface synoptic observations suggest that the depression has not strengthened thus far, although recent images show some increase in deep convection near the estimated center. The initial intensity estimate remains at 25 kt in agreement with surface data over the Gulf. The cyclone should remain in a relatively moist, low-shear environment during the next day or so. However, since the system is not well organized, only slow strengthening is forecast until the center reaches the coast. The NHC intensity forecast is near the upper range of the model guidance at this time. The center is not well-defined and the initial motion estimate is an uncertain 290/8 kt. This is more or less consistent with observations from NOAA data buoy 42001 over the central Gulf. A continued west-northwestward track is expected over the next day or so followed by a slight bend toward the west in response to some building of a mid-level ridge to the north of the cyclone. The official track forecast is a little faster than the previous one but not quite as fast as the latest dynamical model consensus. Key Messages 1. The depression is expected to strengthen and it could bring tropical-storm-force winds to portions of the Texas coast, where a tropical storm watch has been issued. 2. The depression is expected to produce heavy rains across portions of Louisiana and southern Texas. These rains could result in flash flooding.

Multiple unflagged readings of 37kt, this will be upgraded to Tropical Storm Hanna at the next advisory. 

Not much of a pressure fall but that's because it's quite a broad system.

So Hanna is also an Amazon Prime show and the Hanna hashtag has been taken over, the kapow blonde woman emojii can't be removed. Imagine if this had happened with say Hurricane Dorian which sat over Bahamas for five dreadful days. #Hanna

It is impressive how effortlessly she has strengthened! A slow moving storm so likely to bring flooding rainfall to extreme southern Texas as well as parts of Mexico.
