Transonic Dip & Phase lag

Welcome to my first post!
I'm reading about transonic aeroelasticity at the moment; it is well known that the flutter speed of an airfoil decreases substantially in the transonic regime (a phenomenon known as the transonic dip). I was wondering if someone would please shed some light as to what causes this?
I understand that it has something to do with the characteristically large timescale of transonic flows - there is a large phase lag between the motion of an airfoil, say, and the resulting change in airloads. Apparently this can give rise to a negative damping of the motion - which contributes to flutter.
I am not sure why a phase lag between the airfoil motion and the airloads would increase the sensitivity to flutter - could someone please advise?
