At 1000 AM CDT, the center of Hurricane Delta was moving
northwestward near 15 mph through open waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
A general northwestward motion with a reduction in forward speed is
expected through early this morning. Delta should continue along
this track today, before speeding up and turning more to the
north-northeast on Friday. The forecast for Delta has not changed
much since last night and is still predicted to make landfall along
the coast of southwestern Louisiana early Friday evening.
