Snow and ice are set to return across much of Scotland as temperatures plummet over the weekend.
The Met Office has warned of widespread disruption as it issued yellow weather warnings covering both Monday and Tuesday.
As temperatures fall, snow showers are forecast across the Western Isles, Highlands, northwest, Orkney, Shetland and down the east coast of Scotland.
STV meteorologist Sean Batty has warned next week could see temperatures drop as low as -15C in areas.
Drivers have been warned to take extra care with delays on roads and risk of strandings likely.
Rail and air travel will also face possible disruption.
The Met Office said there was a chance some rural communities could become cut off amid the snow and ice.
There is a chance power cuts will occur and other services, such as mobile phone coverage, may be affected.
The yellow weather warning is due to come into effect from midnight on Sunday and last right through until midnight on Tuesday.
STV meteorologist Sean Batty said: “Next week we go into cold northerly winds which will bring frequent heavy snow showers to the north and east, but with the risk of some longer spells of snow anywhere later in the week.
“One of the biggest shifts will be our temperatures with high this week hitting double digits in the west, but by mid-week next week we could be looking at minus double digits in the Highlands, perhaps as low as -15C in a few spots.”
