Victoria's roller coast spring weather is set to continue, with temperatures rising again on the back of last week's snow falls.

Snow fell as low as 200 metres in south-west and central Victoria last Friday, but this week temperatures are expected to hit 32 degrees, along the Murray River.

La Nina takes hold

Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster Keris Arndt said showers, brought by a rain band, were expected to clear.

"We are in for some sunny days, as we round out the week," Mr Arndt said.

"As we head towards the weekend, there will be very warm conditions - in the north-west, we have a maximum of 32 at Mildura and Swan Hill, so quite a toasty day."

He said temperatures would continue to rise on Saturday, as warm air continued to stream down from the inland.

"That's how spring goes, we often have a bit of a roller coast, as far as our weather goes."

Along with the warm conditions, Victoria could expect strengthening winds, ahead of a trough.

Damaging wind gusts were expected in elevated areas on Friday, easing through Saturday.

"By Sunday, we are back down below average temperatures, as we have a band of rain moving across."
