For the period August through to October the bureau says there is no indication of a wetter or drier period with regard to rainfall.

Lorien Martin a climatologist with the bureau says the outlook has forecast warmer days and nights for Tasmania, than normally expected.

Lorien Martin says the trend has been steady throughout the year, which started with serious bushfires in January.
