Snowy showers and strong winds are set to hit Tayside tonight — in what the Met Office says is a rare occurrence this close to summer.
The Met Office said that temperatures are expected to drop and snow will start to fall throughout the Tayside area.
A spokesman added that weather of this sort in days close to the summer months is a rare occurrence.
Because of Dundee’s geographic position the city will be sheltered from the worst of the snow and winds reaching gale force.
But areas such as Forfar and Kirriemuir will be exposed to stronger winds with the snow having more chance of lying on Tuesday morning.
A spokesman for the Met Office said: “The band of colder weather is coming from the north and north west.
“This includes chances of strong winds and snowfall in parts of the Tayside area.
“The best chances of seeing snow in Dundee will be through the night and into Tuesday morning.
“But Dundee will be sheltered from the worst of the conditions.
“The gale force winds will affect the likes of Carnoustie and heavier snow fall will be seen in the likes of Forfar and Kirriemuir.”
