The weather bureau has released its latest seasonal outlook covering the three months of spring which says there are no strong indications for extra rainfall.

Ian Barnes Keoghan from the bureau says the prospect of an El Nino event has dropped, and the amount of rainfall expected does not indicate higher or lower than average.

Ian Barnes Keoghan says warmer than average days and nights should continue over the three month period, which has been that way for most of the year.

He says the winter period for Tasmania was a lot drier than last year, although the conditions were mixed with wind damage, and some heavy rain in some areas.
