    After a record breaking day, the snow has returned, adding even more accumulation to our area.

    Heavy snow, as high as 16.3 inches, piled up quickly in towns across the region with some of the highest accumulations coming in Northern Delaware and South Jersey.

    The northern and western suburbs adjacent to Philadelphia, like Montgomery, Chester, Bucks and Mercer Counties and the Lehigh Valley, were in the bull's-eye for the most heavy snow.

    Parts of Chester County had more than 14 inches, while towns in Bucks and Montgomery counties also saw totals in the double digits by 1 p.m.

    Before the snow changed over to sleet and later rain, Philadelphia, South Jersey and northern Delaware also saw totals ranging from just a few inches to more than 10 inches.

    By 1 p.m. Wednesday, Camden had 11.5 inches of snow, Wilmington had 10 inches and the official total at Philadelphia International Airport is listed at 8.8 inches.

    Our area got a break from precipitation for a few hours, but rain, even some thunder and lightning moved into parts of the region including New Jersey and Delaware earlier this evening. Sleet fell for a short time in the Philadelphia area and around 10 p.m., snow took its place. Tonight's snow is expected to drop anywhere from 3 to 6 more inches with the potential for higher amounts.

    "If this thing doesn't get out of here fast, we could see more snow than expected," says NBC10 First Alert Meteorologist Sheena Parveen.

    Models show the heaviest snow before midnight.
