On February 2, TCWC Darwin reported that a tropical low has formed along the Gulf of Carpentaria. The storm made landfall on the northern tip of Queensland. On the same day, TCWC Darwin issued their final advisory as it crossed the Queensland territory.

On February 3, it was located east of Cairns, the BoM and the JTWC issued a TCFA on the tropical low, as it continued to gain strength over the Coral Sea.

On February 4, the JTWC upgraded it into a tropical storm and designated as 10P, while the BoM designated the storm as Tropical Low 12U. Later that day, the BoM upgraded the system into a Category 1 Tropical cyclone, naming it Jasmine.

On 6 February, Tropical Cyclone Jasmine moved into the RSMC Nadi’s area of responsibility, where it continued to intensify into a Category 4 severe tropical cyclone. Early on 7 February, Jasmine completely left the BoM basin for good.
