The H on the weather map stands for high pressure system. A high pressure system is when air is at a higher pressure then the air around it. The L on the weather map stands for low pressure system. A low pressure system is when the air pressure is lower then the air masses around it.The weather map shows that there will be warm fronts cold fronts and stationary fronts. There is going to be a warm front in Texas,a stationary front from New Mexico to Illinois,and a cold front from Illinois into Canada.

The H on the map over northern CA, north eastern WA, south western MT, eastern WY, northern NA. and near Virginia mean there is high pressure in those areas.

The L located near western Arizona, southern Texas and Oklahoma mean that there is low pressure in those areas.

There is a cold front moving in from Canada, through Michigan and Illinois, and also through Missouri and Oklahoma. And kinda through Texas.

There's a stationary front through Illinois, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas.

There's light rain in Arizona, heavy rain through Kansas and Oklahoma and Illinois.
