·1-min read

The spring thunderstorm that drenched Melbourne is moving east, prompting a severe weather warning on Monday for several regional areas.

East Gippsland, the North East and West and South Gippsland were all received heavy rainfall warnings.

The SES said on Monday morning it had 385 calls for help in the previous 24 hours.

A storm also hit the northeast on Sunday afternoon, with a 70-year-old woman taken to hospital after being blown off her feet at Yarrawonga Holiday Park.

Strong winds in and around Ballarat on Monday morning also meant one building lost its roof.

There were 170 SES calls in greater Melbourne, particularly because of flash flooding.

Suburban Moorabbin in Melbourne's southeast reported 63mm of rain to 9am on Monday - November a record for that area - while there were about 300,000 lightning strikes across the state.

Milder conditions are forecast across the state from Monday, with a heat wave then developing in the northern Mallee area from Thursday.

Mildura's record November high of 45.5 degrees could be under threat by Saturday, according to the Bureau of Meteorology.
