Great balls of ice!

Parts of Angus were hit today with a sudden freak storm of hailstones which set alarm bells ringing in our area.

The sudden shower this afternoon (Friday) just after 4pm had folk running for cover as hailstones rocketed out of the dark clouds over Arbroath and Carnoustie.

Driving conditions became difficult for a short period during the heaviest part of the storm, there was some brief thunder and lightning and there are reports of house burglar alarms being triggered by the ferocity of the weather.

Did you get caught out by the weather this afternoon? Let us know at
