Hurricane Delta (Another GoM Double Header)
« on: October 04, 2020, 04:42:47 PM »
NHC has issued a projected path for current Potential Tropical Cyclone 26, which will likely be Hurricane Delta and it will probably be active in the Gulf while current TS Gamma is still active. Gamma doesn't look to do much other than possibly hit the Yucatan with rain bands, but Delta is forecast to go into Louisiana as a hurricane by late Friday or early Saturday. A second instance of two active systems in the Gulf at the same time in the same season seems truly insane.

It would also be the first greek named storm to make landfall as a hurricane.  It could drop some very heavy rain across the same areas impacted by Sally.  Beta was the first US landfalling storm.

If the models are true we could get some decent rain from it on Monday the 12th

Some models want to drift Gamma north and potentially interact in some way with future Delta.   

We have a whole fraternity/sorority in the Gulf of Mexico.

The latest NHC update now has 26 with a 100% chance of development in 48 hours so Delta may be a named storm sometime tomorrow. While we enjoy beautiful fall weather here we'll have plenty to watch in the Gulf. As others have correctly mentioned this storm may be rolling over areas already badly hurt this season so even a lower intensity storm could cause major problems.

The NHC track this morning is showing a slight right-hand turn after landfall, not the boomerang swing we've seen in other systems this year, that brings it almost straight into Tennessee. If the track holds this may turn into one to watch for local weather impacts.

We have 100yds of beach to ourselves in each direction. Need passes to get through the check point to get our rental. The island is a ghost town. Were going all the way down to the west end today and may have the whole place to ourselves. There isnt any damage that Ive seen that I would consider significant/ devastating. Everything appears to be cosmetic. There is roofing and siding everywhere. Every house is on stilts and plenty are missing their stairs. Beautiful fall weather so far.

WXHD's spot at the moment sounds more than a little bit like paradise. Enjoy!

Yep. Weve taken and continue to take all precautions while traveling. Quarantine and virtual learning have starved our souls of fresh air and open views. Back to the grind soon enough, Ill be sure to get a weather report in first though!

Here are some Delta Gamma's.  May or may not be related to the current situation in the Gulf of Mexico.
