Well, the bad weather was much predicted and when it finally arrived it didn’t disappoint.
Thunder, lightning and torrential rain hit Dundee and the surrounding areas in the early hours of today.
Weather experts had said the conditions were due to strike yesterday afternoon but while other parts of Tayside heard rumbles of thunder nothing of substance hit the City of Discovery.
That was until the early hours when social media became alive with pictures and videos of the storm. This map shows the number of tweets increasing as the thunderstorm hit the area.

Perhaps it’s fortunate that the V&A at Dundee has fallen behind its original schedule, judging by where this fork of lightning struck on the Waterfront (pic by Denise Hill).
Weather forecasters often get it in the neck when their predictions are off the mark, so it’s worth pointing out that the Met Office experts saw this one coming yesterday.
The overnight action in the sky was the talk of social media – no doubt as people struggled to sleep.
Twitter user Steve Barham said: “For the last 90 minutes Dundee has witnessed a thunderstorm like no other I have seen.
“Four flashes of lightning every 30 seconds and constant thunder.”
