Well, I did a mileage estimate from the last advisory (11AM) based on the 90 miles n/ne of Barbados to see how far it is from Orlando (which is pretty much the center of the state, that's why I picked it). At her current rate of speed, TD#6 is averaging 552 miles/day. The mileage from Barbados (+90miles nne of it) to Orlando is 1870 miles. If she keeps up her current rate of speed, it would (if this happens) affect Orlando in about 3-1/2 days.
That being said, in my own humble opinion, unless she slows down in the next 48 hours, she may just rip herself apart and I do not believe that she could make any turn (which has already been said here by someone) to the WNW.
I think, based on her speed that she will:
a) run out of her own convection;
b) continue on a due West track into the Bahamas/Cuba/area and then after that I don't know.
I know, I should have been a brain surgeon. That job has already been taken.
