UPDATE: TROPICAL summer storms that have lashed Victoria this week are set to clear today.
Humid conditions yesterday meant almost 50mm of rain fell in Victorian towns in only a few hours, the Herald Sun reports.
However, the weather bureau has predicted sunny skies from today.
Mt Hotham received the biggest deluge, recording 49mm between 9am and 4pm.
Falls Creek received 40mm and Mt Bulla recorded 35mm.
Storms also lashed the northwest of the state yesterday including Mildura, passing across Melbourne before hitting east Gippsland.
Senior forecaster Richard Carlyon said the soggy conditions were over and he expected lower temperatures today.
"We have had some really tropical conditions across the state in the past few days," Mr Carlyon said.
"Generally across the northeast of the state there has been 10 to 30mm of rain.
"But we will have much less humid conditions across the state and it is going to be much cooler."
A top of 29C was recorded in Mildura, Echuca and Mangalore yesterday before the storms.
Meanwhile the Environmental Protection Agency has issued warnings for poor beach conditions across the state, including Rye, St Kilda and Queenscliff.
Swimming in contaminated water can cause ear, eye and skin infections as well as diarrhoea.
The week of wild weather came after the bureau predicted less than average rain for summer and higher-than-average temperatures.
Meteorologist Harvey Stern said warm ocean temperatures would stir up a warmer-than-average summer in Victoria.
