In the wake of the rain and snow that fell over the region on Tuesday, quiet weather is in store for the rest of the week and the weekend.

After some sunshine Wednesday and cool temperatures across much of the region, tranquil and seasonable weather will continue today.

A strong area of high pressure will be in control for the next several days, which will keep the stretch of dry and tranquil weather going.

Clouds will thicken up a bit later Friday and Friday night as some warmer Pacific air moves in, but any precipitation should stay north of the region.

While it will be a slow process, the warmer air will win out by the end of the weekend and early next week.

Afternoon temperatures will get back into the 50s by the weekend for most, with some places cracking the 60 degree-mark early next week.
