The Met Office has placed Dundee and the surounding area under a yellow ‘be alert’ warning for high winds.
Bonnie Diamond, meteorologist at the national forecaster, said the gusts were the result of a low pressure system moving in, dispelling the mild and sunny conditions of recent times.
She said: “We’re losing the high pressure we’ve been blessed with in the last few weeks. A cold front system, together with Atlantic low pressure moving in from the west, is bringing this windy weather.”
Ms Diamond added that the winds were likely to peak in the later hours of the morning or the early afternoon and that the west coast was likely to see the worst of the weather.
