Saw this in Pennsylvania today. Looks to be an orbweaver, but haven't seen any with that color pattern.

Araneus marmoreus, Marbled Orbweaver. https://bugguide.net/node/view/2016 The info section in this link gives more info a about the markings variations. I found a note in it from 2015 by our site’s late founder, Mandy Howe. She said there was research on your variant in progress at that time. I don’t know what the results were.
