(1) Watches and warnings: gale watches or warnings are possible without a classified system, but storm/hurricane watches or warnings will only go up if a system is classified (i.e. as at least a TD).
(2) No, this will not be classified as a TD or storm unless that closed center of circulation is found. Again, it's part of the definition of a TD or tropical storm, so unless the definition is changed, that won't happen.
