...and now back to our regularly scheduled program  ;D

NHC is now showing Delta reaching major hurricane status Wednesday then dropping back to just hurricane status on Thursday.

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

Delta is looking to become a Major and with a westward trend will impact Cancun before popping off into the Gulf of Mexico.  Serious situation unfolding.

Discussions tonight are saying Delta may be the worst hurricane to hit Cancun in 15 years. It still looks like cooler water and some unfavorable winds take it out of major hurricane status before a U.S. landfall, but I wouldn't take anything for granted if I was on the Gulf coast.

I think it slows down and goes into western Louisiana. Will be interesting to see what the other system does to it.

The updated track from overnight looks like Delta has slowed down but will spend more time as a major hurricane. While it still drops to regular hurricane status by landfall the longer it moves along as a major hurricane the more water it can push, which may raise the storm surge threat for the coast. Actual landfall looks to depend on when the storm makes that right hand turn, which will of course have implications for who gets the later weather inland as well.

I know this can chance but I have been impressed so far with the consistency of showing a Louisiana landfall.

Now that I say that watch that change and to where we have models making landfall in the TX/LA border and others in the FL Panhandle in about a day or two.

Pretty much every model is a Cancun to a Morgan City, LA hit. Amazing consistency.  May be time to start getting nervous in Central and Southeastern Louisiana.

I really wish the NHC or whoever is in charge properly retires this name instead of sticking a year next to it if it does to Cancun what I think it may be about to do.

Latest forecast still has it as a 65MPH Tropical Storm not far from Greenville, MS.  If that verifies it could still produce tropical storm conditions as far north/northeast as Oxford or Tupelo,MS.

Watching TWC tonight and they're talking about Delta as a strong Cat 3 at Gulf coast landfall. There isn't much time left to prepare or effectively order evacuations. This could quickly get really scary.

LSU moved their game to Columbia, MO because of the hurricane threat

Take notes, Gators
