Re: Delta Lounge

10 06 0z model runs coming in that are adapting to the more southern initial position as well as increased strength are continuing a trend of placing the Yucatan under a direct threat for a Cat 3 - 5 impact, and then an even farther run west, to possibly ride just offshore of the Texas coast before making landfall in Louisiana.

This is a reasonable solution, and an extremely dangerous outcome if verified.

The last two serious hurricanes to directly impact in and around Cancun were Wilma (2005) and Gilbert (1988) (h/t Michael Ventrice). History doesn't necessarily repeat itself, but it can rhyme, and several of the better models have them impacted at Cat 3-5 range.

Later in the period, a trof coming across Texas is expected to turn Delta north and then north-northeast, but timing and relative strength of both are critical. Continued shifts to the left or right are likely. Even tonight recon is finding evidence that a center reformation may again be underway (odd for a hurricane).
