Have not looked at any recent morning models, but continue to be impressed by the explosive convection ( CDO ) that appears to be consolodating close, if not over the center. Hard to say whether this is a reforming center or if Emily has slowed down. My take on this is that we are seeing the best organization for Emily thus far, however I would guess that the lacking of banding features might indicate that we are still seeing a more mid level system that is tilted and not yet ( but getting closer ) co-located with the low level pressure center.
I cannot help but think one of two things are soon to occur here. Either the low level vortex will continue to run out from under the convection and the system might open up into a vigerous wave, or that we may have a hurricane on our hands that might threaten Haiti or even Dominican Republic.
Slowed motion might also be an indication of the system finally deepening as well, thus am not sure the present motion will be indicative of the near to mid term motion. If in fact we are witnessing significant strengthening, than I think this evening's 0Z run data and modeling will have the first real handle on "what" and "where" Emily will be in the days to come.
