Victorians have not seen the last of damaging winds, with gusts up to 110km/h forecast for parts of the state on Thursday.

The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a severe weather warning for southwest, central and northern areas along with parts of Gippsland and the Wimmera.

The worst of the winds are due to peak over alpine regions, while gusts of 90km/h are due to hit centres including Ballarat, Daylesford, Bacchus Marsh and Ararat.

"We do have another cold front approaching from the west," senior forecaster Michael Efron said.

"It does appear those winds will be affecting the Great Dividing Range but also down to the Otways and Mornington Peninsula. But nowhere as strong as what we had (on Tuesday)."

Earlier in the week, winds reached almost 130km/h at various locations across Victoria.

Some "handy" rain was expected on Thursday, along with snow above 800m, and hail might hit the southwest coast, Mr Efron said.

The State Emergency Service is urging people to secure loose items, move cars under cover and stay away from fallen powerlines.
