Melbourne weather: Rain begins to hit city as Victoria braces for worst floods in decades

Victoria is bracing for an unprecedented  storm with rainfall so heavy it is expected to cause major flooding throughout the state.

Heavy droplets hit central Geelong about 2.30pm on Thursday, with rain increasing across western parts of Victoria after midnight.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms also hit west of Bendigo with up to 30 millimetres predicted to lash the region in the early hours of Friday morning.   

Bureau of Metrology senior forecaster Chris Godfrey said it was just a taste of what's to come.

"It's the start of a great rain band, which is coming in from the west that will spread across the state on Friday night," he said.

As the record-breaking rain bears down on Victoria, forecasters have said the state is entering "uncharted territory" with all of Melbourne's rivers predicted to flood
