Another 200mm could be dumped on Victoria's already drenched northeast as the low pressure trough that caused havoc on Monday returns, not once but twice in coming days.

Weather Channel senior meteorologist Dick Whitaker said several rivers could burst their banks with falls of up to 100mm in East Gippsland and the north-east expected today.
"We're probably looking at rainfall in excess of all-time records in parts of NSW and perhaps northern Victoria," Mr Whitaker said.
Albury-Wodonga could see nearly 200mm by the end of the weekend - smashing the 45mm record total for March almost 20 years ago.
Mr Whitaker said the unusual low pressure system would strike with heavy showers today before skipping over the border and returning to Victoria on Saturday to hit the state's north.
"It's all to do with this low pressure trough, which is very slow-moving, it's oscillating in a north and south fashion. It's unusual and that's reflected in the cumulative rainfall totals we're looking at," he said.
Melburnians are also set for more grey weather, with showers to intensify over the weekend. However no heavy downfalls or flash floods are expected in the suburbs.
By 3.30pm today parts of Gippsland had received huge rain totals with Combienbar copping 59.8mm since 9am. East Sale recieved 15mm, Mr Moornapa 45mm, Lakes Entrance 64mm, Mallacotta 44mm and Piont Hicks 42mm.
In the North East, Albury had 36mm since 9am to about 3.30pm, Beechworth 34mm, Corryong Airport 45mm and Mt Hotahm 49.6mm.
Wind gusts reached 95km/h at Mt William this afternoon and 90km/h at Eildon fire tower this afternoon.
