Drivers have been advised to exercise caution after issuing a yellow weather warning for thunderstorms in Scotland.
The Met Office announced the warning, which runs from noon to midnight Tuesday, Monday.
The regions of Angus, Clackmannanshire, Dundee, Falkirk, Fife, Perth, Kinross and Stirling are all expected to be affected by heavy downpours and thunderstorms.
Up to 60 millimeters of rain could fall in just three hours, the Met Office has warned.
And flood warnings have been issued for 10 parts of Scotland as the recent heat wave is expected to give way to thunder and rain.
Now, in a statement on Twitter late last night, Traffic Scotland said: âThe @metoffice has issued a YELLOW weather warning for THUNDERSTORMS. Tomorrow (JULY 27) from 12:00 to 23:59 … #DriveSafe â.
Traffic Scotland posted a series of tweets, warning specific areas that they could be affected by flooding and transport disruptions.
