(Undated) -- The latest winter storm to hit the region has fizzled out a bit, but is still expected to result in up to four inches of snow in some areas.

The total snowfall is much lower than forecasters had initially predicted.

A winter weather advisory is in effect until 10:00 a.m. for Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Lancaster, Lebanon and York counties.

Some schools have delayed the start of classes or closed for the day.

Amtrak has trimmed schedules for its Acela Express and Northeast Regional trains.

Amtrak says passengers should also expect fewer runs than normal on its Keystone Service, from Harrisburg through Philadelphia to New York City.

Trains should operate normally farther north, where less snow was expected. 

Passengers with reservations on the affected routes were being notified by Amtrak, which will try to place them on other trains.
