Your 3am wake up call

If you were woken around 3am in Cairns by rain like me, here's the cell that caused our brief but intense downpour. It was an almost Wet Season like squall that passed over quite quickly and noisily.

The gap around the crosshairs in the image is a normal artifact, but the circular pattern just north is interesting. Convection perhaps? I didn't see any wind at Trinity Beach, but I thought I could hear it distantly.

Unfortunately the BOM animated image is a Flash image rather than animated GIF, so I couldn't save it.
