TC Rhonda was the final cyclone of the 1996/97 season. It had become a cyclone by the morning of 11 May and tracked in an eastsoutheast direction for its entire lifetime. TC Rhonda intensified to a Category 4 storm during 14 May southsoutheast of Cocos Island and then weakened before dissapating and being absorbed into a cut-off low pressure system near the west coast of West Australia during 17 May. There was no direct impact on either the islands or Western Australia from the system.
