Hey Bob,

Indeed a very impressive MCS last night over the Sierra Madres. There were actually two systems...the one that developed over NE Sonora, and another intense, but more compact MCS over NW Chihuahua near Nuevo Casas Grandes and Janos – minus 78C tops on both systems at their peak per IR.. NCG reported just under an inch of rain per SMN:

These systems actually left us with twin MCVs over southeastern Arizona. As of this afternoon (4pm MDT), convection is firing up along an arc from near Show Low, AZ to just north of Deming, NM. Surface obs suggest these are developing on the edge of the low level moist pool associated with the MCS leftovers, and aided by local terrain.

I'll email you a couple screen grabs, and feel free to post them.
