By BBN Staff: The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is issuing advisories on Category 4 Hurricane Delta in the Caribbean.
NHC says that Delta could be an extremely dangerous hurricane as it reaches the Northeastern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula.
A west-northwestward to northwestward motion is expected over the next couple of days.
A slower northwestward to north-northwest motion is forecast to begin by late Wednesday or Wednesday night.
On the forecast track, the center of Delta is expected to continue to pass southwest of the Cayman Islands through early this afternoon, and move over the northeastern portion of the Yucatan peninsula late tonight or early Wednesday.
Delta is forecast to move over the southern Gulf of Mexico Wednesday afternoon, and be over the southern or central Gulf of Mexico through Thursday.
Reports from a NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate that the maximum sustained winds have increased to near 130 mph with higher gusts.
Although some weakening is likely when Delta moves over the Yucatan peninsula, re-strengthening is forecast when the hurricane moves over the southern Gulf of Mexico.
