WILD, wet and windy weather is expected to continue in Bendigo early this week.
Winds are expected to reach up to 150 km/h on Monday night.
A severe weather warning has been issued for most of the state on Monday, with thunderstorms and severe winds forecasted to hit the area in the mid-afternoon and peak overnight.
It is expected to reach a maximum of 25 degrees.
Duty forecaster Sarah Scully said the winds are expected to affect much of Victoria, with Bendigo experiencing some of the stronger winds.
“The winds are expected to pick up throughout today and they should peak in Bendigo overnight, but it will still be very windy this afternoon,” she said.
“The wind strength looks to be about 80 knots, which is about 150 km/h. It’s severe.”
Ms Scully said Bendigo's recent wild weather was not unusual for spring.
“This time of year can be quite windy," she said. "It’s quite typical.”
The winds are set to ease by Tuesday morning.
