More On The Impressive GoC MCS

From Luis Farfan in La Paz - streeting flooding in Cabo San Lucas produced by the large MCS. 

Jack Hales sent along two images from just before 14 UTC this morning - WV above and visible with some surface obs below. Note the gust to 46 mph north of Cabo San Lucas.

The MCS originated far to south along the coast between Cabo Corrientes and Puerto Vallarta last evening, and expanded dramatically during the night, while moving rapidly to the north-northwest. 

Currently the MCS is crossing Baja and weakening - IR above from 1730 UTC. Of note is that Loreto, Mexico, (see map below) also reported a gust to 46 mph, from the SE, on the last hourly summary - so definitely a very strong outflow moving up the GoC and perhaps into western Arizona by morning tomorrow?
