So how about a round of golf? I have been wanting to try out my new grip and Friday's weather across the Southwest will be well suited for 18 holes. It will be sunny all day with light winds and comfortable temperatures. The California coast will have cool 60s for highs, but just a few miles inland it will reach the 70s and the high deserts will have 80s.

Through the weekend, the storm track will remain across the Pacific Northwest with a big storm due to arrive there Sunday and Sunday night. However, the Southwest will remain dry through the weekend.
