The Met Office says Scotland will be hit by blizzards this weekend.
A yellow warning for snow and ice warning has been issued for the northern part of the country from 6pm on Saturday until noon on Sunday.
Rain on Saturday night is expected to turn to snowfall overnight into Sunday – even at low levels.
Up to 15cm of snow could land on higher ground, while about 5cm could land in lower areas.
The weather warning says: “Snow and ice expected across northern Scotland, with blizzards possible on high ground.
“Some transport likely to be affected by snow, leading to potentially longer journey times. Icy surfaces on roads and pavements could lead to an increased likelihood of accidents and injuries.
“Rain across northern Scotland on Saturday evening will turn increasingly to snow, at first over hills and then down to lower levels through the course of Saturday night.
“Strong northerly winds will lead to blizzard conditions and drifting over high ground, where 10 to 15cm of fresh snow may accumulate. At lower levels, 2cm to 5cm is possible, mainly inland and above 100 m.”
