I noticed the cirrus 'fingers' on the western half of the storm. I agree on the 'running into a wall'. It appears to be an elevated wall...but I haven't been able to determine which level. It's looking to be mid level or higher though. As the lower clouds out west of the center are maintaining their appearance for the most part.
Looking at the AVN color enhancement. There doesn't appear to be much shear on the Western Half of the main storm. Cirrus fingers. Central and NW Convective towers going up. Also notice the increase in the inflow from South America. http://www.ssd.noaa.gov/goes/flt/t2/avn-l.jpg
