Met Éireann's website forecast issued at 7.30pm on Monday says that Lorenzo is currently predicted to be an ex tropical storm at this stage and is likely to 'be in the vicinity'.
It says some wet and windy weather is expected along with some high seas and swells. It will become mild over the country due to the influence of the tropical origin air.
The risk of severe weather continues through Thursday, Thursday night and possibly early Friday morning.
