Hanna looking weaker - for now

From the NHC:

VERY DRY AIR ASSOCIATED WITH THE UPPER-LEVEL LOW OVER THE NORTHWESTERN BAHAMAS IS CHOKING OFF CONVECTION NEAR THE CORE OF HANNA...AND THE CYCLONE HAS A VERY SUBTROPICAL APPEARANCE. CONVECTION HAS DIMINISHED SUBSTANTIALLY OVER THE PAST 6-12 HOURS AND THE HIGHEST FLIGHT-LEVEL AND SFMR WINDS HAVE COME DOWN AS WELL. BASED ON SOME 52 KT SFMR WINDS AROUND 11Z...THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS LOWERED TO 55 KT.

It looks like there just isn't any more moisture around in the atmosphere for Hanna to get a hold of - the storm still looks pretty organized in the satellite images.
