(Undated) -- Snow failing across the midstae is causing schools to close or delay opening today.

The snow is sticking to roadways and slowing motorists because conditions are slippery.

A winter weather advisory is in effect from 11:00 a.m today until 1:00 p.m. tomorrow.

Snow is expected to continue through this evening, but accumulations could vary througout central Pennsylvania by the time the storm moves out of the region.

While Northumberland County could see four to six inches, the heaviest snow could be in Columbia, Lebanon and Schuylkill counties with between four and eight inches.

Two to four inches could fall in Adams, Berks, Cumberland, Franklin, Juniata, Union, and York counties.

In Dauphin, Lancaster, Mifflin, Perry, and Snyder counties, three to five inches is the estimate\ from the National Weather Service in State College.
