Tropical Cyclone Anthony

Tropical Cyclone AnthonyPosition: 18.1S 156.9E [ 9 PM CST 0300 UTC].
Movement: East-Southeast [120°] near 22 mph [35 kph].
Maximum sustained winds: 45 mph [ 75 kph].
Wind Gusts: 60 mph [ 95 kph].
Tropical Storm Wind Radius: 85 miles [140 km].
Minimum central pressure: 998 mb.

Currently about 730 miles [1178 km] East of Cairne, Australia in the Coral Sea.

Some good news: in the last twelve hours an upper level trough to the East of the storm has gotten much stronger than anticipated and is creating significant wind shear. It is possible that the shear will totally disrupt the cyclone.

All that you can do is watch it. With luck it will just stall in the Coral Sea and fade away.
