The state endured a warmer than normal winter with the state averaging 15.3 degrees, up from the 14.2 average.
"Maximum temperatures were generally above average for winter right across the state with minimum temperatures well above average," Mr Delamott said.
According to the BOM, 2021 was the seventh warmest winter on record, and the warmest since 2013.
Spring has just began and the early signs are that warmer and wetter than average conditions for much of the state. According to the BOM it could also be warmer south of the divide with the odds of higher temperatures increased in those areas.
"We are likely to set a few early season temperature records, essentially we haven't seen temperatures this high, this early in the season after winter," Mr Delamott said.
Head of Operational Climate Services Dr Andrew Watkins backed this up in the BOM's spring outlook.
"The outlook is definitely warmer in parts of the south east," Mr Watkins said
"This spring is looking fairly wet (across Australia) which is a bit like what we had last year as well.
"Certainly a lot wetter than what we had in 2017 and 2019 when much of southern and eastern Australia was very dry."
