A dry outlook has been predicted for spring across the State, coupled with cold nights according the climatologists.

According to the latest seasonal outlook issued today by the Bureau of Meteorology, Western Australia is tipped to see a dry, cooler than average quarter.

Bureau climatologist Dr Andrew Watkins said predictions for a wetter and warmer spring come after a particularly wet and warm winter.

"Nationally, we've seen the wettest winter since 2016," he said.

"Australia's average winter temperature is also expected to be one of the ten warmest on record, particularly in the tropical north."

Dr Watkins said the main reason behind the Bureau's prediction for a wetter than average spring was a climate driver called the Indian Ocean Dipole.

The latest outlooks are available on the Bureau's website
