(Harrisburg) -- The midstate remains under a winter weather advisory until 7:00 a.m. today, as light snow continued to fall in parts of the region in the early morning hours.

Dozens of school districts are delaying the start of classes this morning, due to icy and slippery conditions on secondary roads.

PennDOT has temporarily reduced the speed limit to 45 miles-per-hour on Interstate 81 in Cumberland, Dauphin and Lebanon counties and Interstate 78 in Lebanon County.

An agency spokeswoman says if people must travel, they can check conditions on major roadways by visiting 511PA.com.
