Last minute shoppers and festive travellers have been warned to take care on the roads over the next 24 hours with flood warnings and winds of up to 80mph forecast.
Heavy rain is still affecting many areas with 17 flood warnings currently in force across the country.
Forecasters are also urging people to take care, particularly in areas like the east coast and Shetland where high winds of around 70 to 80 miles per hours are expected.
People heading out for last minute Christmas shopping and drivers travelling the country for the festive holiday are also being urged to take extra care on the roads and should check with Transport Scotland and Sepa's Floodline for road condition and flood warnings.
People have been urged to check local radio and local authority websites for ongoing updates in their areas.
Environment minister Paul Wheelhouse said: "With more rain and high winds expected I urge the public to be extra vigilant and to pay particular attention to the likes of local radio and websites as well as Sepa's Floodline before embarking on any journeys.
"This afternoon I chaired the Scottish Government's Resilience Operation (SGoRR) meeting to ensure we remain fully aware of the picture across the country.
"Following this, I would again like to thank all agencies and local responders for their efforts and hard work over the last 24 hours in dealing with the conditions many part of the country have been experiencing."
