Quiet Weather to End Week

After a relatively chilly night look for temperatures to rebound nicely later this morning.  High pressure remains in control and will through the weekend.  Next rain chance looks to be early next week with possible thunderstorms.  The second named tropical system also formed yesterday and is moving into Mexico this morning.
