Spring is around the corner and so is a spring-like storm.

Minnesota likely will get a mix of rain and snow this weekend, forecasters say. It'll start with rain, and possibly freezing rain and sleet, moving into southwest Minnesota Friday, KARE 11 reports.

The metro can expect rain Saturday, turning to snow Saturday night, and a bit of accumulation is possible, especially in the northern and western reaches of the Twin Cities, KARE says. The region could get a half-inch to an inch of rain, WCCO says.

There's a 30 percent chance of snow Sunday, with a high of 32 in the Twin Cities, the National Weather Service says.

The Twin Cities got about 9.3 inches of snow in the storm earlier this week, bringing the metro's seasonal snow total (now 44.8 inches) just above average (43.8 inches), KSTP reported. That's about half the snow the metro got in its snowiest year ever (98 inches in 1983-84). Here's the top 10 snowiest winters on record for the Twin Cities.

Here's KARE's forecast:
