I normally ignore models when they are being influenced (read made wrong consistently) by land interaction, but the UKMet has shown the southerly/westerly route the most. So Galveston to about Cameron, I'd strongly considering doing preps today or leaving before the mad rush. We won't have a good idea until tomorrow morning when it clears Cuba, but by then you'll only have a little under 36 hours for prep work, which means it could be a zoo in the more urban areas if it winds up that way.
The other part with the slight south fix, is more time over water, which means the higher end intensity seems more likely. Also surge may be dramatic with this storm, especially if it ramps up well before landfall. (The momentum is the key there)
