The weather bureau says for the month of October two words, wet and windy describe the conditions for Tasmania.

Ian Barnes Koeghan from the bureau says the month was a tough one for farmers with wet conditions perisisting and an unusual number of windy days.

He says it was very wet in the west of the state and Tasmania had cooler days and milder nights during October.

Ian Barnes Keoghan says the winds should abate somewhat as we head into November and things will warm up and there is no indication of above or below average rainfall.
