Gritters have been out in force across the north and north-east already today, although police have warned some roads still need extra caution – such as the A98 Banff to Fochabers road, between Buckie and Fochabers.
Motorists are being urged to drive to the conditions and check before setting off on any essential journeys.

In Aberdeen, Elgin and Inverness, temperatures are expected to sit at around 0C-1C throughout the day, but will drop to about -2C tonight.
Similar temperatures are expected in much of Aberdeenshire although by late afternoon in Aboyne, forecasters expect the mercury to drop to -3C.
Tomorrow will be slightly milder, with decent spells of sunshine expected in the afternoon across the region.
After the rainy conditions of recent days, many people were delighted to see the chilly conditions return and have been sharing their photos online.
Skye looked particularly serene at sunrise, while people in Gardenstown and Aberdeen also enjoyed the crisp bright start to the day.
