Bendigo has already received more rain in 2020 than it would typically see in the course of an entire year.
Bureau of Meteorology data shows 523 millimetres of rain have been recorded so far this year - an increase of 13 per cent on the average annual rainfall of 461.8 millimetres.
So far this month, the city has received almost 60 millimetres of rain.
Typically, Bendigo would see about 32 millimetres in October, and in the same month last year, just 10.8 millimetres fell.
Since Thursday there has been 20.6 millimetres of rain, most of which was recorded in the 24 hours to Saturday morning.
Castlemaine and Maryborough are yet to reach their average annual rainfall total.
But Castlemaine's rainfall tally is not far off, with 570.2 millimetres recorded so far - a little under 30 millimetres off its average 12-month total of 600 millimetres.
Meanwhile, Maryborough has so far seen 430.8 millimetres.
The town receives an average of 535.7 millimetres in a year.
The Bureau of Meteorology forecasts a mostly clear week ahead for Bendigo, but wet weather could return by the end of the week.
There is a medium chance of showers on Friday and Saturday, with the likelihood of rain reducing by Sunday.
The Bureau of Meteorology last month declared a La Nina event, which typically brings more rain.
