Drivers are being reminded to take care on the roads in "challenging" conditions as heavy rain continues to hit the country.
The warning comes as two drivers were stopped for allegedly driving at around 100mph on the M8 on Wednesday night during what police described as extremely poor conditions.
Meanwhile, flood alerts have been issued for coastal areas still recovering from severe weekend storms. Heavy rain and strong winds are also expected to hit central Scotland over the next two days.
The Met Office has amber "be prepared" weather warnings in place for central Scotland while yellow "be aware" warnings cover much of the rest of the country. Snow could fall in the highest areas, forecasters added.
Strathclyde Police issued a warning to drivers about the dangers of speeding during adverse weather. The force said officers stopped two drivers on the westbound M8 between junctions 13 and 16. The men were allegedly driving at speeds of 98mph and more than 100mph in a 50mph zone.
Superintendent Jim Baird said: "If you drive in excess of the speed limit you risk not just your life, but other road users' lives also. To do so in such poor weather and road conditions is just plain dangerous and is unacceptable."
He added: "Those conditions last night were extremely poor, in terms of visibility and the probability of, unexpectedly, encountering surface water.
"If you drive dangerously, you are likely to be caught. Please respect the speed limits, the road conditions and drive safely so that you, your passengers and other road users are not put in danger because of your driving."
Tayside Police said rain had been falling across the region, with a build-up of surface water on roads across Angus, Dundee and Perth and Kinross.
Officers warned of a potential risk of river flooding, with the overall conditions expected to result in large waves - potentially up to five metres along the coast line. Council workers in the area have been checking gullies, ditches and drains as well as distributing flood warning signs and sandbags.
