Track of TC 23P

Tropical Cyclone Zane (23P), located approximately 218 nm northeast of Cairns, Australia, has tracked westward at 05 knots over the past six hours. Maximum significant wave height is 35 feet.

Animated infrared satellite imagery indicates the system has slowed and begun a slight turn equatorward during the past 12 hours. Dvorak assessments are in good agreement and confirm a relatively steady intensity during the past 15 hours.
