(Harrisburg) -- Drivers are dealing with slick roadways this morning after a mix of snow, rain and ice blanketed the region overnight.

PennDOT has reduced the speed limit to 45 miles-per-hour on the area's major roadways.

The restrictions are underway along:

-- Interstate 81 in Franklin, Cumberland, Dauphin and Lebanon counties 

-- Interstate 78 in Lebanon County

-- Interstate 83 in York, Cumberland and Dauphin counties

-- Interstate 283 in Dauphin County

-- Route 283 in Dauphin and Lancaster counties

-- Route 22/322 in Dauphin County and Perry counties

-- Route 581 in Cumberland County

-- Route 11 in Franklin and Cumberland counties

-- Route 15 in Adams, York and Cumberland counties

-- Route 11/15 in Cumberland and Perry County counties

-- Route 30 in York and Lancaster Counties

-- Route 222 in Lancaster County, from Route 30 to Berks County line

The Turnpike has done the same for a portion of the toll road from the Blue Mountain/Kittatinny Mountain tunnels west to the Breezewood Interchange (#161) and on the Northeastern Extension (Interstate 476) from Lehigh Valley (#56) north to Clarks Summit (#131).

Juniata and Mifflin counties are under a winter weather advisory until 10:00 a.m., while much of the region is under a winter storm warning until 7:00 a.m.

Dozens of schools have delayed the start of classes today.
