The Met Office has issued a weather warning for Dundee and Tayside as restrictions have been placed on the Tay Road Bridge.
The forecaster has placed a yellow warning for wind on the city, as well as Angus and parts of Perthshire, which begins at 9am and ends Tuesday at 6am.
The warning takes in the whole of the northern Scotland.
The Met Office predicts:
- Some delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport are likely
- Some bus and train services will probably be affected, with journeys taking longer
- Delays for high-sided vehicles on exposed routes and bridges are likely
- Some short term loss of power and other services is possible
- It’s likely that some coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities will be affected by spray and/or large waves
The warning added: “Very strong winds are expected to affect northern and parts of eastern Scotland on Monday and Monday night.
“Gusts of 65 to 75 mph are likely, particularly in the far north and northeast, before winds gradually ease from the west during Tuesday.”
Due to the wind, the Tay Road Bridge is currently closed to double decker buses and a 30mph speed restriction is in place.
