A tropical low that formed northwest of Arnhem Land (N.T.) on 31 March moved south over the Gulf of Carpentaria but failed to develop over the next five days. From 5 February when it was located near the NT coast near Port McArthur, the low commenced an eastward track and developed, reaching cyclone intensity on the morning of 6 February before crossing the Queensland coast in the southeastern Gulf.
