SEVERE Weather Warning In Place For Melbourne YET AGAIN!

Victorians are been warned to batten down the hatches with wild winds expected to lash parts of the state - again.

A severe weather warning is in place for Central, South West, North Central and parts of the East Gippsland, North East, West and South Gippsland and Wimmera districts with peak wind gusts expected to reach 90km/h on Thursday night.

Winds in Melbourne are expected to reach their peak between midnight Thursday and 7am on Friday.

The Bureau of Meteorology says winds in the warning area are expected to be of similar magnitude to what was experienced last weekend.

Those storms brought down trees and powerlines, leaving thousands of homes without power on Sunday morning, mostly in eastern suburbs.

That damage paled in comparison to the destruction caused by deadly winds that lashed Victoria on October 9.

Those destructive winds cut electricity to more than 100,000 homes, leaving many customers without power for days, and a woman died when a tree fell on to her house.

Locations which may be affected this weekend include Warrnambool, Seymour, Maryborough, Ballarat, Geelong and Melbourne.

The SES advises that people should:

* Move vehicles under cover or away from trees
* Secure or put away loose items around your house, yard and balcony
* Keep clear of fallen power lines.
