UPDATE: EMERGENCY services say they are "completely confident" the region is fully prepared as Cyclone Zane makes its final approach to the eastern Cape York coastline.
UPDATE 11:30am: CYCLONE Zane is unlikely to be upgraded to a category 3 as predicted yesterday as it continues to approach the Cape York coastline.
Zane has been upgraded to a category 2 cyclone with latest estimates of winds up to 160 km/h heading for Far North Queensland.
GALE-force winds will begin hammering the northern parts of the Far North coast as a low pressure system, expected to upgrade to a cyclone tomorrow morning, continues its approach.
A LOW pressure system hovering off the Far North is likely to become a cyclone by the end of the day as it begins its track towards the coastline, although Cape York residents are remaining wary, but not panicked.
QUEENSLAND'S fourth cyclone of the season is expected to form on Monday in the Coral Sea.
ANOTHER year, another cyclone season and another summer of fear - that's the prospect for Cairns dog owners Vladimir and Eva Zeman who want the city to build a cyclone shelter to accommodate pets.
