Tropical Cyclone Ilsa 2023
Satellite images, weather maps and tracks of Category 5 Tropical Cyclone Ilsa 2023, April 6 - 16. Max wind speed 235km/h.
Ilsa is located 632 km east-northeast of Learmonth, Australia, and has moved southeastward at 24 km/h (13 knots) over the past 6 hours.
Infrared imagery and a composite radar loop from Broome show the system has made landfall and is accelerating inland.
The initial position is placed with high confidence based on a sharply-outlined 26 km eye in both animations. The initial intensity of 215 km/h (115 knots) is based on CIMSS automated fixes DMN and OPEN-AIIR and consistent with the rate of degradation after landfall.
Ilsa will continue to track further inland over north central Australia and rapidly decay due to high wind shear and land interaction, and dissipate in 2 days.
This is the final warning on this system by JTWC. The system will be closely monitored for signs of regeneration.
