Hurricane Dean, already a monster Category 4 storm that has brought death and devastation across numerous Atlantic and Caribbean islands, is projected to make incremental progress across the Caribbean this week. Here's a snapshot, according to the latest forecast (8 p.m. Sunday) National Hurricane Center.
In the early hours of Tuesday morning, Hurricane Dean will be sitting on the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, near the coastal resort city of Cancun. By Tuesday afternoon, Hurricane Dean will have crossed the Yucatan Peninsula and be nearing the Gulf of Mexico.
By Wednesday afternoon, Hurricane Dean will be approaching mainland Mexico. Where it goes from there is beyond the latest National Hurricane Forecast.
