I don't think so. One could make an argument for it but if you watch the loop carefully, the visible loop you can see the center with the coordinates to the north of that area. This storm has always had an area of strong convection to the south of the center.
Either way the satellite presentation is improving with banding more visible.
And, we are beginning to see signs of a sharper turn on a few models that would mean a few degrees further west now do not change the turn later as the turn is pretty evident on the water vapor however the visible shows the center twisting still.
It could relocate but once over water the center will become more evident I think.
Sharp turns in hurricane history happen all the time. Both King and Cleo turned sharply and even though they came from different angles the landfall and track was the same. The reason was the same, they felt the pull of a trough diving down and rode it north. That should not be forgotten.
