So here is the Z500 before the center relocates, I dont think this classifies as a vigorous MLC personally. There isnt even a vortmax visible, it forms in the next screen when the LLC relocates which doesnt seem right
It's most likely overdoing it, but with a broad circulation you can have center jumps. If you have northerly shear pushing convection south away from the LLC, the MLC might try to take charge.
