WeatherTheatre SceneOne captures Tropical Cyclone Christine, not long before it crossed the Northwest Australian coast.  TC Christine stands out as a slender vorticity tube, coloured by wind speed, near the Northwest Australian coast on the 30-12-2013-18z SceneOne analysis.  The strongest winds are lower down the in atmosphere, as is typical for warm cored tropical cyclones (via the thermal wind relation).
