October 6 2020
A little more than one day after being named, Hurricane Delta has become the third major hurricane of the 2020 season. Then shortly after the 11 AM update pushing this as a Cat 3, it was upgraded again 20 minutes later!
Winds are now 130 mph and the first direct hit appears to be on Cozumel and Cancun, Mexico. The forward speed has increased, but it will curve and slow on a path to the Louisiana coast Friday night. We still need to watch the inland rainfall to reach the Mid Atlantic later in the weekend.
This is the 25th named storm of the season for the Atlantic. Of them, 9 have become hurricanes, and 3 major hurricanes (Cat 3+).
Here are the latest resources from Monday evening available to track the storm. They include satellite, National Hurricane Center Forecast, and weather widgets.
