Dundee is known as the sunniest city in Scotland but it could also lay claim to be the windiest after a 'tornado' was filmed over the Tay.
Twisters are a far more common sight across the pond but Dundee witnessed one of its own this Sunday swirling above the iconic river.
The circling column of air had onlookers convinced that it was a small tornado, known throughout the world for the damage and destruction they cause.
But this was no devastating force of nature, poised to wreak havoc on our city. It was actually just a funnel cloud - more entertaining than dangerous, despite its appearance.
The whirling vortex was even photographed by a number of bemused Dundonians, with one plucky citizen even managing to record the video you see below.
"Small tornadoes and funnel clouds are actually quite regular occurrences," she said.
"They form around an area of intense low pressure and we do see them fairly often to be honest. There’s been several sightings over the last couple of weeks but people certainly shouldn't be panicking. They happen every now and then."
Like Ms Maxey, STV's own resident weather expert, Sean Batty, was eager to quell any notions of danger.
"The video shows a lovely well-formed funnel cloud, but not a tornado," he said.
"It would have become a tornado if it had reached the ground, but until that point, in the meteorological world, we refer to them as funnel clouds.
"People might get a bit of a fright from seeing something like this as it’s an unusual sight in our skies but normally I will get several reports of funnel clouds each year in Scotland, and of course, we hear about them more as many people have cameras readily available on their mobile phones.
"On the very odd occasion these funnel clouds do touch the ground and become tornadoes, but fortunately in the UK the winds are less extreme as those experienced in more continental parts of the world, and therefore lead to less damage."
The 'Tay tornado' video you see above was recorded by Gair Dunlop.
