Drivers are being advised to plan ahead after the Met Office issued a weather warning for Monday afternoon.
The amber alert covers Borders, Lothians and Fife and forecasts heavy and persistent rain coupled with strong winds.
The conditions are expected to cause disruption on the roads from Monday lunchtime onwards.
Motorists are being urged to show caution and seek travel advice before starting their journey.
Transport Minister Keith Brown said: "In light of the Met Office warning for wind and rain in many parts of the country, our trunk road operating companies have all their resources available, including patrols, and will pre-position resources in areas of special attention.
"The Traffic Scotland website, Variable Message Signs, and traffic internet radio are being used to provide up to date information to the travelling public, allowing them to plan and amend their journeys accordingly.
"Our Multi Agency Response Team will be operational from tomorrow afternoon until the weather improves."
