Intense MCS Along GoC Coast

An intense MCS with multiple extremely cold cloud-top centers has been moving rapidly along the east coast of the Gulf of California toward the north-northwest. The convective event began yesterday evening, and this system has been propagating up the coast from south of Mazatlan and has now reached the central GoC. Two obvious and important questions - how long will it continue to maintain its intensity? and will it/has it intiated a strong northward surge of low-level, moist sub-tropical air? More later today.
