MANHATTAN — It's no snowmageddon, but the white stuff that's been seen so rarely this winter could arrive Wednesday. 

Forecasters are predicting flurries starting about 2 p.m., followed by a chance of heavier snow in the evening.

The National Weather Service says the next chance to glimpse winter will be Saturday, when meteorologists are forecasting a chance of snow before noon, turning to rain showers in the afternoon.

For those looking for real snow accumulation, temperatures would need to drop.

January clocked in as the fourth warmest on record for the contiguous United States, with an average temperature of 36.3 degrees, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
