South Shore now included in Winter Weather Advisory

Winter Storm Benji is bringing rare snowfall to the Southeast on Friday, and will continue northward throughout the weekend.

The lower Hudson Vallley could see several inches of snow today from the East Coast storm that dropped 6 inches of snow in MS and Alabama.

The snow will intensify in the Northeast by mid-Saturday morning and stay in the region until nightfall, and in New England throughout Saturday night.

Accumulations of five to seven inches are expected across the North Fork, with lesser amounts across the South Fork due to mixing. Areas south of Atlanta will see a half inch to two inches of rain. As a result, some counties in South Jersey originally under the "winter storm warning" criteria have been scaled back to a "winter weather advisory".

Instagram is testing moving Direct messaging to a new app
The app is now available in six countries, no word on whether it will be released globally but if all goes well most likely soon. Whether that happens later or not remains to be seen but it makes sense for it to be within the messaging app.

Sussex County has taken the brunt of the season's first winter storm so far, but the rest of the state can expect to feel its effects during the day and into the evening on Saturday. Total snow accumulations of 2 to 4 inches are expected.

Snow accumulations will be dependent on temperatures and precipitation intensity. Washington, D.C., can expect one to three inches, while the rest of the Northeast, from eastern Pennsylvania, central to northern New Jersey, and NY to ME will likely see three to five inches this weekend.

Forecasters say 4 to 6 inches of heavy snow is possible in New Jersey.
