Parts of Tasmania have recorded their driest June on record, with no strong signs of above average rain for the coming months, the Bureau of Meteorology says.
Fingal received just 2 millimetres of rain last month, compared to its June average of more than 60mm.
The Bureau of Meteorology did not record rain in Hobart for the first 18 days of the month.
It was a different story last year when records were broken around the state because of unrelenting rain.
