The bureaucratic reason can be found here:

In a nutshell, it's because National Hurricane Center believes that by the time it hits landfall it will no longer be a tropical storm, and thus no longer their responsibility. At that point, National Weather Service takes over, but NWS does not issue Hurricane warnings - only NHC does that.

The whole thing reminds me of this:
