    It just increased to a Cat 4, 130 mph. Supposely will decrease to a minor hurricane before it comes ashore on the Gulf (maybe Louisiana), but Michael was supposed to have decreased too.

    Cancun and the peninsula will suffer heavy damage.

    Delta was originally forecast to be a 2. Now it's bumping 5. Sally and Laura both well over achieved forecasts. Would love to know how they whiffed there badly on all of them.

    Delta is in a unique position to become a VERY stong cat5 based on it's position in the ocean.

    17 you 2020!
    Looks like it's going to be a solid 3 when it hits but it has shifted West a hair. Hopefully more but the two damn troughs are going to make it tough to go west.

    Might want to call this one the HWY 61 storm. Latest models and they are all in agreement have it Morgan City Baton Rouge then 61 all the way up.

    Well the GFS, HRWF abnd HMON are basically in agreement. The HMON has been the eastern most model most of the year and they are finally in agreement with the others. But it all depends on when the Trough moves through. Also look at where it goes over the Yucatan. Yesterday it was going to hit the western half of Cuba. Now its the middle of the Yucatan. Yep Cancun gonna get hit bad. Of course Scooba is more of an expert than me and he has more informed sources. Tomorrow check all the Storm Chasers and see where they are heading, That would be a good indication.

    Here is the latest thinking.

    Delta now has 140mph sustained.

    Baton Rouge is going to take a big pounding. If you a roofing contractor you might want to go start handing out flyers.

    Official track has now shifted west. Landfall looks to be central LA coast and then sitting over Vicksburg as a tropical storm by Saturday afternoon and then tracking NE towards Tupelo. This puts most of MS south of the center and in the tornado threat as it moves inland.

    I'm no expert or weather guru but by the looks of everything I've read, I think it ends up moving to the west of Vicksburg slightly....But who knows at this point, it depends on when it makes its northern turn.

    Anywhere from Lake Charles to Redstick is going to get pounded due to the immense size of the windfield.
