A strong storm will be crossing the Ohio Valley Sunday, bringing snow to West Michigan, with some areas perhaps seeing as much as 10-14" of accumulation. Snowfall will be heaviest south as opposed to north, so near/south of I-94 is where the highest accumulations are expected... 10-14" possible. However, Allegan, Barry, Ionia, Ottawa, and Kent could see anywhere from 6-10". Additionally, gusty winds will be blowing the snow quite a bit, causing drifting on roads along with poor visibility. Travel is discouraged from late Saturday night through Sunday night.

The National Weather Service has issued a WINTER STORM WARNING for the following counties in West Michigan, effective until 6 am Monday: Allegan, Barry, Berrien, Calhoun, Cass, Kalamazoo, Kent, Ionia, Ottawa, Van Buren,  St.Joseph, Branch, and Hillsdale. WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY for Muskegon, Newaygo, Mecosta, and Montcalm  until 6 am Monday.

CDC releases new sunburn advice for kids story image
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Surely it's enough to get you to slather on the sunscreen this weekend.

According to the CDC, a few serious sunburns is all it takes to increase a child's risk of skin cancer later in life.

If your child is going outside, remember the phrase slip-slop-slap, and wrap.

  • Slip on a shirt and pants
  • Slop on some sunscreen
  • Slap on a hat
  • and Wrap on some sunglasses.

Doctors say children should avoid the sun between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.

Sun damage is cumulative, so even moderate sun exposure can have negative lasting effects.
