From Senior Meteorologist Brett Anderson of AccuWeather.com, of which the American Press is a member: "A strong Atlantic high pressure system should keep Dean on a slightly north of due west track through the weekend. ... Beyond that, the strength and position of that Atlantic high will determine whether or not Dean makes a more right-handed turn right into the Gulf of Mexico or continues west into the Yucatan Peninsula."
