When I was watching that cell from the Buffalo nexrad site I looked at the radial velocity and at 0.5 and 1.45 deg elevation I thought I saw about 15 minutes worth of mild rotation around the center of that system. however as the storm passed over, the system (IMO) looked like it started to create a bow echo which could be signs of a downburst. I'm trying to track down the images now, hopefully I can find them...I believe the weather was occurring around 1:50pm

here is the radar at the time with my estimates of what was going on...
