Northward movement happened before it reached 74W, which bodes well for staying east of Florida, but not as good for the Carolinas. Although it is better for Jamaica as it won't get a direct landfall if the forecast track holds. Cuba/Bahamas still will see the brunt of it, regardless. Hopefully it will continue to trend east away from the US, but there is still a great deal of uncertainty with the system. NHC cannot rule out Florida, still.
One thing to watch out for is if to see if the northward motion is "real" or just an effect of the cyclonic loop, if it does another loop or moves more westward things may change. We should know the answer to that over the next several hours.
