Tropical Depression 26 is now Tropical Storm Delta. It is expected to become a hurricane by tomorrow as it moves out of the Caribbean and into the Gulf of Mexico. Landfall projections have shifted a little further west, somewhere along the Louisiana coastline on Friday as a hurricane.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Gamma is weaker near the Yucatan Peninsula. It will meander in that vicinity for the next 2 or 3 days, before dissipating.
