As a result, some counties in South Jersey originally under the "winter storm warning" criteria have been scaled back to a "winter weather advisory". The snow, moving up from the south, will likely begin after 2 a.m. Saturday. Benji makes for a two-thousand mile swath of snow from Texas to New England. Snow fell in Brownsville, one of the country's southernmost cities, where three days before the storm the hottest temperature in the country of 90 degrees was reported. A winter storm dumped almost 2 feet (58 cm) of snow on the suburbs of Washington, D.C., on Saturday before moving on to Philadelphia and NY, paralyzing road, rail and airline travel along the U.S. East Coast. MS and Alabama may see one to three inches by Friday evening, as well as Atlanta, Georgia. Southern New Hampshire was expected to see some snow early Saturday afternoon. "Total snow accumulations of 6 inches of more are possible in the most persistent lake snows".

The winter storm warning is in effect until 6 a.m. Sunday. On Sunday, strong west winds will push cold air across the Great Lakes, bringing lake effect snow to parts of Tug Hill and Western New York.
