Here we got again! Delta was just named this morning, and has already jumped to hurricane intensity. I said it was worth watching with a favorable environment, but this was quicker than I expected. The National Hurricane Center update at 8 PM had winds at 75 mph, and now forecasting this to be a major hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico in a few days!
This is the 25th named storm of the season for the Atlantic. Of them, 8 have become hurricanes, and 2 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.

Wind Forecast: Tropical Storm Arrival
GFS Forecast Animation
Why should we be concerned? Because the rain is likely to impact us over the weekend. The GFS Model pulls the core west, while the European might be closer. I will update on both each day this week. At this point, Sunday looks to be the day with more rain for our region.
