A high pressure system is a local region of air that is at a higher pressure than air masses around it. It is labeled on a weather map with a capital H. High pressure systems tend to be made up of cooler air. Air tends to diverge, or spread out from high pressure systems
A low pressure system is a local region of air that is at a lower pressure than air masses around it. It is labeled on a weather map with a capital L. Low pressure systems tend to be made up of warmer air. Air tends to converge toward, or move into low pressure systems. Low pressure systems are often at the center of severe weather.

The "H" that stands for high weather, is located in the states of California, Idaho, and New Mexico. It usually means it is hotter there then in other states.
The "L" which means the temperature is low, or colder, is in Utah, Minnesota, South Dakota, Nebraska, and towards Alaska.
There is a trough front going from Nebraska to Texas. It means there is low pressure there.
There are cold fronts in the west and north east along with warm fronts in Wisconsin through Indiana and one outside of Oregon.
There is rain in the north east, along with scattered fog around Texas, Kansas, and Minnesota...
