The Met Office has warned that homes could be flooded with the current spell of rain set to get heavier over the next 24 hours.
It has issued a yellow warning for heavy rain across Dundee, Tayside and Fife.
The warning is valid from 2pm today until midday tomorrow.
The warning said: “Persistent and occasionally heavy rain over parts of Scotland will continue into Wednesday.
“Localised flooding is likely along with disruption to some transport routes and difficult driving conditions.
“There is also a low likelihood of greater impacts across the northern half of the warning area where some flooding of homes and businesses is possible.”
The worst affected areas are likely to be north, south and west of Dundee.
The persistent rain has already caused the closure of Camperdown Wildlife Centre.
A tree limb came down early this morning, forcing the wildlife centre to close its doors, though the cafe will remain open.
The rain and wind is thought to be the cause of the tree damage.
A spokesperson said: “Camperdown Wildlife Centre is closed today.
“A tree limb has come down early this morning and closing the wildlife centre will give our staff time remove it and to carry out repairs.
“Our zookeepers and staff are working to clear the tree branches and any damage this may have caused throughout the day.
“All of our animals are safe and not unduly affected by our closure today. We plan to be open as usual tomorrow – if not, then we will post on our social media to keep visitors up to date.
“The Cafe will remain open during this time.
“We apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
Meanwhile, police have appealed for motorists to take extra care on the roads.
