IN THE WAKE of Storm Ophelia, the weather will be mostly calm and dry across the country today.

Ophelia moved towards Scotland during the night and the status red warning has been lifted in Ireland.

Today is set to be cool and bright with sunny spells throughout.

Northern areas of the country will still feel the ends of Ophelia and will be affected by some squally showers during the day.

The rest of the country is expected to be dry, apart from a few showers, most of which will affect Ulster.
