Looks like the gulf is going to get walloped again...currently Cat 2 ... expected to hit as a Cat 2 Saturday'ish.

 

 

 

 

25th named storm of the season ... 3 shy of the 2005 record of 28 storms (eight weeks left in the season).

I don't know why when I read the name ... Delta Delta Delta was the first thing I thought of.

Well, that escalated quickly...

 

 

 

I believe it still is projected to hit the gulf region as a Cat 2 though....

In the NOAA graphics, the M pinpoint for future locations indicates a "Major Hurricane", which is classed as a CAT 3 or higher. So it'll be closer to a CAT 3, if not more...these graphs tend to start off low and then go pedal to the metal as the models are fine tuned, they usually won't want to panic and cause mass evacs/preps until they're closer to being sure of impact. Just the issuance of a watch (and not even a warning) costs millions of dollars after people/businesses start going out and buying supplies to start prepping.
