Flakes might be flying for a while Wednesday, and probably won't add up to much.

In Philadelphia, light snow might fall before and after some late morning and afternoon rain. But even the rain is unlikely, with only a 30 percent chance of any precipitation.

Otherwise, skies are expected to be dry through the weekend. Only 2.5 inches of snow has fallen so far this winter in Philadelphia, almost all of it on Jan. 21.

"Being that any snow should fall during the daylight hours, accumulations should be somewhat limited and mainly on unpaved surfaces," according to the National Weather Service.

"A more noticeable coating of snow could fall from Philadelphia to New York City, and especially in each city's northern and western suburbs," according to AccuWeather.com.

Snow, though, is also mentioned in the forecast from Cherry Hill to Atlantic City.

Still, temperatures won't be favorable for white stuff. In Philadelphia, after highs in the mid 50s today and Tuesday, temperatures will drop a bit, but highs should still reach the low to mid 40s in Philadelphia through the weekend. Overlight lows should only flirt with the freezing mark until Saturday night, when it is expected to dip to the upper 20s.

Conditions should favor rain even in Reading and Allentown Wednesday afternoon, with temperatures rising into the upper 30s.

Any snow's supposed to end by about 1 a.m. Thursday.
