There haven't really been any drastic changes with Ernesto today, just a slow intensification that will probably continue until landfall later this evening.
I'm really surprised they haven't put up hurricane warnings. Normally, if it is this close to being a hurricane within several hours of landfall, there will be hurricane warnings in place.
edit: The apparent size increase of the storm on satellite is likely due to the slowly improving organization of the system. It's not unusual for the cloud tops to warm during the day. That does not necessarily indicate weakening, though it is a sign that the storm hasn't been rapidly intensifying.
