Tropical Cyclone Tim

28 March - 3 April 1994


Tropical cyclone Tim was a very small, weak system throughout its lifetime. The cyclone formed in a divergent northeast to southeast upper-level flow pattern in the absence of any low level cross-equatorial surge. The cyclone moved on a westward path along about 11°S from south of Java to the Cocos Islands, passing about 100 kilometres to the south of Christmas Island at 1200 UTC on 30 March. Because of its small size, its effects at Christmas Island were minimal. Tim was located to the south of the upper-level ridge axis and experienced moderate shear which inhibited development.
