Trouble with setTimeout and an array

I have an array of well over 30 elements, and I'm trying to do an on-screen alert of a group of 10 every 3 seconds (i.e., the first 10 elements alert one time in the first array, the next 10 elements alerted 3 seconds after that, etc.).  My code below seems to be alerting the same piece of the array every time. What am I doing wrong?

function delayCode(locations2) {
      var i,j,temparray,chunk = 10;

      for (i=0; i < locations2.length; i+=chunk) {
          temparray = locations2.slice(i, i+chunk);
          setTimeout(function() {alert(temparray)}, 3000);
