On March 9, an area of low pressure developed to the north of Kimberley. Over the next 3 days, the low moved into the Timor Sea, as the storm slowly intensified.
On March 12, TCWC Darwin reported that the storm had intensified into a tropical low, and gave it the identification 17U. As the storm approached the northern coast of Western Australia, it continued to intensify slowly. On March 14, Tropical Low 17U slowly began to weaken, as the storm made landfall on the northeastern border of Western Australia. Several hours later, 17U made a second landfall over the northwestern border of the Northern Territory. Afterwards, TCWC Darwin issued their last bulletin on the storm, as it degenerated into a weak low.
