Very brisk conditions associated with a strong Arctic airmass to our north will continue to affect the Commonwealth on Saturday before retreating Saturday night. Rising temperatures from southwest to northeast Sunday morning provide some relief from the cold, but signs of winter reemerge overnight as lower temperatures and a wave of lake-enhanced snow showers approach the Commonwealth from the northwest. Occasional snow throughout the western two-thirds of the state persists until late Monday morning before mixed clouds and sun return for the afternoon. Gloomy weather takes center stage once more as clouds and higher temperatures overwhelm the Commonwealth Tuesday and Wednesday. Rain showers are also possible late Tuesday through Wednesday from northwest to southeast.
