High winds, snow and freezing temperatures are expected to return to Scotland.
Storm-force gales brought gusts of 84mph to the Western Isles last week and similar winds are due to disrupt the west of the country.
Falling temperatures are also expected to turn persistent showers to snow by the afternoon causing a covering of the white stuff across large parts of the country.
The Met Office has issued yellow "be aware" weather warnings for many regions including Central, Tayside Grampian, Strathclyde and the Highlands.
James Wilby, a forecaster with MeteoGroup, the weather division of the Press Association, said: "Heavy squally showers will start moving into the west in the early hours along with hailstones and thunder in places.
"The showers will quite likely turn to snow by the afternoon as temperatures stay low and on higher ground and in the north west Highlands there could be as much as 20 or 30cm of snow but it should fall across the country, even in lower parts without causing major problems.
"Strong gusts will accompany the showers, particularly along the west coast and Islands where there is potential to reach 70mph. The east of the country should be a bit better, but there will still be winds of between 40 and 45mph.
"Wintry weather looks likely to remain for the most part of the week but gusts will die down from Tuesday with maximum 40 to 50mph winds, and they are likely to be affecting the northern coastline."
Roads and schools were closed, ferries cancelled and some Western Isles homes damaged by the high winds last week.
While some suffered disruption the strong gales were good news for the renewable energy sector as ScottishPower produced record amounts of electricity at its 28 windfarms. Between January 25 and 31 more than 135 gigawatt hours (GWh) of electricity was produced, enough to power 1.6 million homes in an average week, the company said.
