Tropical Cyclone Jasper hit the North Queensland coast on 13 December as a category two cyclone bringing with it a devastating amount of rain and causing significant flooding across the region in the days after it made landfall. Many areas recorded more than a metre of rain, some recording over half a metre in just a matter of hours.

On 5 December, Tropical Cyclone Jasper developed in the northern Coral Sea, converging around the Solomon Islands. While moving southwest in the Coral Sea, Jasper reached as high as a Category 4 system before being downgraded. On 13 December, the Category 2 system made landfall north of Port Douglas as Australia’s first tropical cyclone of the season.
