The first tropical cyclone of the 1975/76 season was code named Ray . It developed from a low pressure system located west of Java and moved firstly in a generally southwestward direction and then to the southeast after recurving on 24 November. At no time was Ray located over land; however for two days while in its developing stage Ray threatened Cocos Island. The system degenerated over the subtropical waters of the Central Indian Ocean.
