Meteorology (Weather)/Low Pressure Systems in the USA



Where are low and high pressure systems commonly located in the USA?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Angela

Low pressure areas are most common on the east coast, the southeast states and, along the northwest part of the country. No state is immune from a visit.

High pressures usually come out of Canada and impact all the northern states with a predominance from the great lakes and eastward.
