"Fergus will bring some strong winds and heavy rain for a time late on Sunday and into the early hours of Monday morning.
"While the strongest gusts are expected in the Republic of Ireland, Storm Fergus will bring some windy conditions to western areas, including Irish Sea coasts, while also bringing some potentially impactful rain.
