There is a chance that power cuts may occur, travel may be disrupted and some communities could be cut off for a few days.
The latest snow warning will extend the one that covers much of the north-east, Moray, Angus and Perthshire through Wednesday and Thursday.
Another warning for snow and ice is currently in effect for most of the country south of Aviemore.
