A Met Office expert has explained why it is so dark in Dundee today.
Anyone looking or going outside might be surprised to see the sky so dull at 1.40pm.
According to Met Office meteorologist Luke Miall, this is due to a layer effect that sometimes occurs with a low-pressure system.
The city has today experienced heavy, blustery showers and gusty winds, the latter causing restrictions on the Tay Road Bridge this morning.
Mr Miall told the Tele: “The darkness is to do with the cloud layers that are really thick today.
“When you have heavy rain that is persistent you can have a lot of cloud layers, which is why it is so dark.”
This “stacking effect” is indicative of a strong frontal system, bringing a lack of clear air above us.
However, this could change before sunset at 3.52pm.
Mr Miall added: “Hopefully there’s some clear air coming up to Dundee from the south to help improve conditions.
“Some of these heavier bursts of rain are mixed in with lightning strikes.”
