I would guess the centre actually did reform, rather than head north. I think this because the new location is under deeper more persistent convection. This has been in place most of the day, with most convective activity to the north and east of the previous LLCC. Because of the fact the old LLCC was not under the convection so much, i reckon this was a reformation and not just a straight forward northward motion.
Isidore is gonna have the land mass of Cuba to contend with in the next 36 to 48 hours. I would guess that it will be a good C1 if not a C2 at landfall. The question is how quickly the centre crosses Cuba, and how much effect the land has on the structure of the system. Of course, some weakening is likely, but expect Isidore to still be a hurricane when he leaves the north coast of Cuba. Track after that gets difficult, with a number of schools of thought already mentioned. I think that Isidore may stall out, or become quasi-stationary in the SE GOM, possibly taking a loop. Once steering currents take effect again it will probably carry the storm to the N or NE. I still think we will see a Gulf Coast landfall near where Hanna moved onshore last week as i posted earlier.
