Tasmania has had its second warmest winter on record and its first warmest winter since 1988.
Bureau of Meteorology climate scientist Dr Andrew Marshall said the average Tasmanian temperature for winter was just under one degree higher than average, and the equal second highest on record.
"June, July and August all recorded higher than average monthly mean temperatures across Tasmania," he said.
Day and night temperatures both were warmer than average for August.
The winter rainfall was close to average for Tasmania overall, however rainfall for August was above average in the Central West and below average along parts of the East-Coast.
Notable days on record for highest daily rainfall included June 9, July 28, and August 16.
"These events brought some heavy rains and damaging winds to parts of the state," Dr Marshall said.
Looking to spring, Dr Marshall said the season was likely to bring above average rainfall to the North-East.
"Tasmania typically experiences a mixed bag of weather in the spring," he said.
Below average rainfall is expected in the South-West, as is above average temperatures across the state.
