Victorians will finally get some relief from strong winds that have left a trail of destruction, but the clean-up continues.

Trees toppled and roofs were blown off homes as winds reaching more than 140km/h hit Victoria between Monday and Wednesday.

State Emergency Service crews have attended more than 5400 jobs over the three days, with much of the damage in the Melbourne metropolitan area.

SES spokeswoman Christine Paterson says only about 200 jobs remain outstanding, which when completed would allow crews, that have come from across the state to clean up the damage, to get some well earned rest.

"It was definitely one of our busier periods," she told AAP.

After the worst of the winds hit on Monday, causing tens of thousands of people to lose power, further strong winds hit on Wednesday sending trees falling and roof tiles flying.

Bureau of Meteorology duty forecaster Michael Efron said while there were still some strong wind warnings for costal areas, nothing was expected to hit land areas and there were no further extreme winds forecast.

"Normally we have a couple of these events every spring, but we did saw four or five days within a week where we have seen really strong winds," Mr Efron said.

"We have seen fronts coming through every day or second day and there has been no reprieve to those strong winds."
