The ATSB investigation determined that the increase in computed airspeed recorded at the time of the lateral acceleration was likely due to an atmospheric disturbance, which resulted in the aircraft veering unexpectedly. The ambient wind recorded at the time of the occurrence did not indicate if the crosswind increased, or decreased, during the event. Wake turbulence was considered unlikely, as the reported landing of the other passenger aircraft was downwind of the departure runway.
