Motorists have been urged to drive with extra caution as wet weather alerts were in place for today in Strathclyde.
The very strong winds felt yesterday are due to subside for a while but will return across the UK on Wednesday.
A Met Office spokeswoman said: "It will be a rather cloudy and very mild Boxing Day and rain will continue across western areas.
"Very strong westerly winds are likely to develop across northern Britain on Wednesday with a risk of severe gales, including across the Central Belt.
"This could cause disruption to transport."
Heavy rain caused a landslide in the Lochcarron area and the A890 remained closed last night. Northern Constabulary warned drivers to be aware of fallen branches on roads, particularly after dark.
It was a mild Christmas Day for Scots with Fraserburgh the warmest spot in the UK, seeing temperatures rising to 13C. Fort William and Perth recorded temperatures of 12C.
The contrast to the extreme cold of last winter is due to the westerly wind blowing in more temperate conditions from the Atlantic.
Meanwhile, bookmakers William Hill said it had already opened bets for a snowy Christmas in 2012 after wintry weather failed to take hold at 20 locations chosen this year.
Rupert Adams, spokesman for the William Hill, said: "A year ago we were paying out a fortune after snow fell across Scotland, but this year we have cleaned up.
William Hill's winter wagers include 14/1 on the lowest temperature in Scotland to be beaten by April 30. The record currently stands at -27C recorded in Aberdeenshire in January 1982.
Transport Minister Keith Brown urged people to keep up-to-date with the changing weather picture.
He said: "Scotland's weather is notoriously unpredictable.
"Our resilience planning this year has been designed to deal with unexpected events.
"Everyone should take sensible precautions, particularly if they are travelling."
