Average rainfall predicted for TasmaniaTony Briscoe, Wednesday June 19, 2013 - 14:13 EST
The weather bureau says Tasmania can expect warmer days and nights from July through to September but average rainfall.
Dr Andrew Watkins the Manager of Climate Predictions at the bureau says temperatures in Tasmania could be two to three degrees warmer in the three month period.
Dr Watkins says the modelling shows Tasmania to have no strong tendency towards being wetter of drier than normal.
He says a wetter than normal season is likely for the mainland areas of southeast Australia compared to Tasmania.
Dr Watkins says the current conditions are caused by warm sea surface temperatures around the coast of Australia.
