Traveling this weekend? Winter Storm Benji could affect your journey

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – Winter Storm Benji has arrived in the South ahead of weekend travel.

Snow has fallen as far south as Brownsville, Texas and traveled along the Texas coast – a rare sight for this area.

Locally, we won’t see snow as the storm moves across Georgia and into North Carolina.

But if you are planning to travel this weekend, your journey may be affected.

Snow will be moving into the metro Atlanta this afternoon, which has already caused a few delays and cancellations.

Delta has canceled 125 flights through Hartsfield-Jackson and Southwest has canceled more than 40 flights.

The Savannah/Hilton Head International airport asks travelers to confirm your flight status with your airline.
