Another round of snow is expected in the Philadelphia region tonight, and there's a chance of more flurries in the area through Wednesday.

The National Weather Service says snow is likely between 9 p.m. and midnight. Forecasters say there's a 60 percent chance of snowfall, and we can expect less than an inch of precipitation.

Then Tuesday, there's a small-but-still-present chance of light snow. That snow, if it comes, is most likely to fall before 9 a.m. Odds of snow increase Tuesday evening, and there's a possbility of flurries Wednesday morning, according to the weather service.

Some parts of the region saw light snow overnight, and the weather service warned commuters to be aware of potentially icy roads this morning.

Over the weekend, much of the area saw snow late Saturday into early Sunday. The highest local snowfall was the 2.2 inches recorded in New London in Chester County, according to weather service data. At the Philadelphia International Airport, 0.6 inches fell.

The high temperature for today is expected to be 30 degrees.
