Delta will continue to intensify today as it approaches the Yucatan Peninsula, likely making landfall late tonight or early tomorrow near Cozumel as either a Cat. 4 or 5 storm. It will continue northwest into the Southern Gulf, where it will re-emerge and re-strengthen before turning northeast and heading for the Central Gulf Coast.
