A monsoon low was identified near New Caledonia and initially moved southwest before it began a north and then northwest movement. Vaughan intensified rapidly due to favourable upper diffluence and was named on 3 April. The system tracked westward and started to weaken, being downgraded to tropical low intensity on 6 April. The low moved further west and caused heavy rainfall along the Queensland coast.
