A pre-winter rain dump has prompted moderate flood warnings for Victoria's east.
Heavy rain has fallen across the Gippsland and East Gippsland regions, with widespread totals between 70 to 110mm recorded over the 24 hours to 9am.
The highest rainfall figures were 135mm at Mt Waldron, 114mm at the George near the Genoa River, and 110mm at Chandlers Creek.
In response, the Bureau of Meteorology on Wednesday issued a moderate flood warning for the Bemm, Cann and Genoa rivers.
Minor flooding is also expected along parts of the Snowy River.
Senior forecaster Tom Delamotte said it was likely the flood warnings would remain current until at least the end of the week, despite the wet conditions easing.
"Largely the rainfall has eased over Gippsland," he said on Wednesday.
"There are still a few showers to come but we're only expecting further falls of around 5mm or so for the rest of today.
"By tonight we should see some dry conditions prevail over Gippsland."
Victoria's reprieve will be short-lived, however, with showers forecast to develop to the state's west on Thursday.
Mr Delamotte said the front would usher in cooler conditions and some rain, but nowhere near the three-figure totals Gippsland has experienced.
