A tropical low formed north of the Kimberley on 2 March and reached cyclone intensity as it moved on a general southwest track. Tropical cyclone Victor intensified into a category four cyclone peaking on 5 March well north of Karratha. The cyclone did not cross the coast, but followed a track parallel to it at a distance approximately 240 to 450 km offshore. Victor eventually weakened below cyclone intensity on 9 March west of Geraldton.
Although gale-force winds were registered at Barrow Island there was no direct damage caused by Victor . However, offshore industry operations were disrupted causing economic losses.
