The Met Office has issued a weather warning for rain and wind covering much of Tayside.
The yellow warning is valid from 1pm Friday for the remainder of the day.
The Met Office warning says: “A spell of heavy rain and strong winds is expected on Friday.
“A band of heavy rain is expected to move east during Friday with widely 15-25 mm of rain falling and perhaps 50 mm over higher ground.
“This will be in addition to other spells of heavy rain earlier in the week affecting a similar area.
“Rain will be accompanied by strong winds with gusts of 50 mph possible inland and perhaps 60 mph around some coasts.”
It added that people should expect: “A few homes and businesses flooded; spray and flooding on roads will make journey times longer; some delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport.”
It also warned of delays for high-sided vehicles on exposed routes and bridges, “some short term loss of power and other services” and “coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities affected by spray and/or large waves”.
