Heavy rain and gale-force winds of up to 80mph are expected to batter Scotland after the first bout of wintry weather this week.
The Met Office has issued a severe weather warning for the whole of Scotland on Thursday.
It predicts heavy rainfall will hit the country on Thursday accompanied by gusts of wind betweeen 60 and 70mph will become quite widespread across Scotland, with 80mph gusts possible over exposed coasts and hills.
Heavy rain and hill snow are likely to accompany the strengthening winds.
This is predicted to come after a drop in temperature overnight from Monday will create icy conditions on roads that have not been gritted on Tuesday after snowfall.
On Monday, the first snowfall of the winter caused disruption to road and rail networks, while a number of schools were also forced to close.
A lorry driver died in a collision between two HGVs in snowbound conditions on the M73 motorway.
The 43-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash at the Baillieston junction, where the motorway links with the M8 and the A8.
STV weatherman Sean Batty said that the northern isles, including Orkney and Shetland, could experience blizzards later in the week.
He said: "Wintry conditions are likely to persist for many parts of the country throughout this week. Freezing levels will rise and fall meaning there will be a mix of rain, sleet and snow at times.
"Heavy falls of sleet and snow and blizzard like conditions are possible across the northern isles during the early hours of Tuesday, while this may continue into the afternoon across Orkney and Caithness.
"Ice will also be an issue during the week, drivers are advised to take care in particular on untreated surfaces."
Transport Minister Keith Brown also warned of further wintry weather this week.
He said: "After a treacherous Monday morning for many commuters across Scotland the weather is generally improving. That said conditions this evening and tomorrow morning are again likely to prove difficult due to more snow, wintry showers and freezing conditions, so staying alert and allowing extra time for journeys are absolutely key in order to help keep Scotland moving."
A fleet of more than 130 gritters were out throughout Sunday night to treat trunk roads and 3000 tonnes of salt were used by Monday morning.
