PITTSBURGH - Spring is here, but winter is still trying to put up a fight.

Rain is in the forecast for most areas through Saturday night, with the potential for some snow overnight into Sunday morning.

Rain totals on Saturday will range from half of an inch to 1 inch depending on the area. Periods of heavy downpours are possible.

Snow is expected to work its way into the Channel 11 viewing area after 12 a.m. Sunday. As colder air moves in overnight Saturday, precipitation will begin to change over to snow.

Snow amounts in and around Pittsburgh should only reach around 1 inch, with most accumulation sticking to grassy areas.

Some areas north and east of Pittsburgh could potentially see 1 to 2 inches of snowfall. Locations farther north, past Interstate 80, and in the highlands to the east may see as much as 4 inches.

A winter weather advisory has been issued for Lawrence, Mercer, Venango, Forest, Elk, Clearfield, Cambria, Somerset, Preston, Garrett, Westmoreland and Fayette counties from 10 p.m. Saturday until 11 a.m. Sunday.

Snow will wrap up by mid-morning Sunday.

A high of 43 and a low of 28 are forecasted for Sunday.

Sunshine will return to the area on Monday, with a high of 60.
