What is the Met Office saying about Storm Fergus? 

Storm Fergus has been named by Met Éireann.

On Saturday, Storm Elin, also named by the Irish Meteorological Service, brought some strong winds and rain.

The Met Office said today: “A band of rain, at times heavy, is moving gradually from west to east through the day on Sunday and will affect much of the UK, before the arrival of Storm Fergus to western areas later in the afternoon.

“A number of Met Office warnings for rain have been issued, predominantly focused on northwest England and southwest Scotland, as well as parts of northern and eastern Scotland.”

'Strong winds and heavy rain' 

Met Office Chief Meteorologist Andy Page said: “Storm Fergus will conclude what has been an unsettled weekend of weather for the UK. 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.

“The rain has potential to be disruptive in parts of northern England and parts of Scotland, especially where it’s falling on very saturated ground.” 

Storm Fergus will weaken as it moves to the east in the early hours of Monday morning.
