A low formed north of Port Hedland on 4 February associated with a monsoon burst. It suffered under moderate easterly shear for much of its lifetime limiting development. Gales occurred on the western side from the 5th through to when it was named on the 8th. On these days, however, gales did not appear to extend more than halfway around the low level centre and convection pulsed diurnally. Its duration as a cyclone was brief on 8 February, and weakened rapidly the following day.
