Dundee and the local area has been placed under a flood alert as the country braces itself for Storm Diana.
The Met Office has already issued severe weather warnings with the storm expected to bring gale force winds and downpours to much of the country on Wednesday into the early hours of Thursday.
This has led the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) to warn of surface and river flooding due to the torrential rain.
The flood alert is in place from Wednesday into Thursday.
In a statement on its website, SEPA warned of difficult driving conditions with localised flooding in lower area.
It read: “Heavy and persistent rainfall is expected from Wednesday afternoon.
“This will lead to a risk of flooding from surface water in the afternoon and evening of Wednesday and from watercourses from Wednesday evening into Thursday.
“Impacts are likely to include localised flooding of low-lying land and roads, disruption to travel and difficult driving conditions.
“Remain vigilant and remember, it is your responsibility to take actions which help protect yourself and your property. Advice and information is also available through Floodline on 0345 9881188. “
