Emily reforms just east of the southern Florida peninsula
http://radar.weather.gov/radar.php?rid=AMX&product=N0Z&overlay=11101111&loop=yes and once Emily is further north, the loop from Melbourne will be more practical: http://radar.weather.gov/radar.php?product=N0Z&rid=mlb&loop=yes
Since the system did not "sneak under the westerlies", it lifted north and will continue to move north then northeast into the open ocean and come under the unfriendly influence of a mid-latitude front by Monday. So its time as being "Emily" is limited once again.
Elsewhere, an easterly wave that exited the African coast back on July 30 is approaching the Lesser Antilles, at about 55W. In addition, a new wave has just exited Africa and is near 17W... this can be traced back to the Ethiopian Highlands on Aug 2 and has a rather potent history as it trekked across the continent.
