The weather bureau today released its latest seasonal outlook for Tasmania which shows the state can expect wetter and warmer conditions than normal.
Ian Barnes Keoghan from the bureau says the predictions show that there might not be much relief from the recent heavy rains for summer.
He says over December, January and February the chances of exceeding the median rainfall are greater than 60 per cent over Tasmania.
Ian Barnes Keoghan says the state can also expect warmer days and high average minimum temperatures during the three month period.
