It looks innocent but look out. Note the small low pressure center located between Cuba and Florida. It isn't much now but it is expected to become a large winter storm for the East Coast as it moves parallel to the coast this week. High winds, snow, ice and rain are expected. See your local forecast at weather.gov for details. 

If you will like to plot a map like this yourself you may purchase the software at www.weathergraphics.com. The graphic here does not do the software justice. It is versatile and plots surface and upper air data (and much more) readily available at no cost from the internet.

The surface data plot on this map uses the station model plot format that is available free on Weatherbriefing.com.
