Drivers have been urged to take care after a yellow weather warning of thunderstorms was issued in Scotland.

The Met Office announced the warning, which runs from midday to midnight on Tuesday, on Monday.

The areas of Angus, Clackmannanshire, Dundee, Falkirk, Fife, Perth and Kinross and Stirling are all expected to be affected by heavy showers and thunderstorms.

Up to 60 millimetres of rain could fall in just three hours, the Met Office warned.

And flood alerts have been issued for 10 Scots areas as the recent heatwave is predicted to give way to thunder and rain.

Now, in a statement on Twitter late last night, Traffic Scotland said: “The @metoffice have issued a YELLOW weather warning for THUNDERSTORMS. Tomorrow (JULY 27th) 12:00 until 23:59... #DriveSafe”.

Traffic Scotland issued a string of tweets, warning specific areas that they may be hit by flooding and transport disruption.

These included:

A further explanation of what to expect on the Traffic Scotland website added: “Flooding of homes and businesses could happen quickly, with damage to some buildings from floodwater, lightning strikes, hail or strong winds.

“Where flooding or lightning strikes occur, there is a chance of delays and some cancellations to train and bus services.

“Spray and sudden flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures.

“Some communities might become cut off if roads flood.

“Power cuts might occur and other services to some homes and businesses could be lost.”
