Temperatures begin to rise at the end of the work week after a strong cold front moved across the Commonwealth. Cold air remains throughout the state on Thursday but breaks of sunshine will return. Areas near Lake Erie and throughout the Northern Tier may see lake-effect snow bands throughout the day. Temperatures begin to increase Friday, as high-pressure funnels in warmer air. Precipitation chances return overnight Friday into Saturday where most of Pennsylvania will see rain showers. Rain chances will end on Saturday, but cloud cover will remain for the entirety of the state. Sunday, however, will bring an end to the overcast and rainy conditions. Dry and warm conditions will begin to persist through the beginning of the next work week.
