CaneTracker, not really. The convection and associated outflow would serve to add some additional energy to the ridge above it due to convective heating, but this would be expected to be minor (if not negligible over such a short time scale). It could lead to some convective drag, but really, it's probably just reorganization of the storm once again.
And yes, Emily's a hurricane as of a 10pm special update. Waiting on the particulars in the 11p package, though, which is understandably a little late in coming. Guess the storm finally did decide to get its act together this evening, eh?
