IF you needed to dig out an extra blanket and a warmer jumper you had good reason with the temperature in Warrnambool dropping 15 degrees since Friday.
The Bureau of Meteorology's severe weather warning remains in place for the south-west with the temperature in Warrnambool falling from 26 degrees at 3pm on Friday to a chilly 10 degrees at noon on Saturday.
Since 9am on Saturday the bureau had recorded 6mm in Warrnambool, Mortlake had recorded 7.2mm and Port Fairy had recorded 4.6mm.
Strong winds and hail were predicted for Warrnambool on Saturday afternoon and showers were expected to continue on Sunday.
Warrnambool SES volunteers responded to one call out with a tree down on Wangoom Road at 4pm.
SES unit controller Giorgio Palmeri said the tree was blocking the west bound lane with two crews called to clear the incident
Bureau of Meteorology Senior Meteorologist Dean Stewart said the weather would be quite blustery right across the state.
"It's pretty unusual to have a run of days in the mid teens this early in April," he said.
"So it doesn't happen all that often but we can get cold outbreaks at anytime of the year.
"Usually it might just give one cold day but it does look like the weekend and even in to early next week... will still be pretty cool across the state."
The bureau warned that damaging winds averaging 60 to 70 km/h with peak gusts of around 90 km/h were expected to develop near exposed coastal areas of western and central Victoria during late Saturday afternoon.
The damaging winds were expected to further extend to elevated areas of western and central Victoria during Sunday morning.
