Severe weather warnings remain in place across the UK after storms battered parts of the country with storm-force winds, pouring rain and heavy snow.
Some areas of Scotland are on a red warning - the Met Office's highest level - as gusting winds reach 100mph.
From central Scotland to the borders and around Strathclyde the weather is expected to cause widespread travel disruption as drivers battle through blizzards.
Bad weather has already caused havoc on Scottish roads with several crashes, including on the M8 near Glasgow and M74 in South Lanarkshire.
Other parts of Scotland are on an orange weather warning, the Met Office's second highest level.
"For some parts of the country, it's been a wintry start to the week and as people start to return to work, I would urge everyone to take the time to check before they travel and make the necessary preparations before setting off," said Scotland's transport minister Keith Brown.
"With further snow and high winds forecast, I would ask the travelling public to play their part by checking their journeys in advance, making the necessary preparations and following police travel advice.
"Our transport teams monitor the situation round the clock and will continue to keep a watch on our transport networks to minimise potential disruption and keep Scotland moving."
Weather Warnings Across Rest of UK
Elsewhere in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, yellow weather warnings are in place.
Wind and rain swept across the country overnight and some areas are still facing gusting winds and downpours.
According to the Met Office the public "should be aware of the possibility of disruption due to strong winds", including travel.
They also warned of localised flooding in some areas experiencing particularly heavy rain.
Though the weather should ease off, yellow weather warnings remain in place across western parts of the UK for Jan. 4.
