WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY & WINTER STORM WARNING

SATURDAY EVENING THROUGH EARLY MONDAY

 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.

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.

Clinical trial tests new surgical procedure story image
LOS ANGELES (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Doctors are testing out a new, less invasive surgery that can actually clear blocked arteries and prevent patients from having strokes

More than 300,000 people in the U.S. are diagnosed every year with blockages in the cartoid arteries.

So far, about 40 people have taken part in the clinical trial.

If all goes well, doctors hope to also perform the procedure on low risk patients.

Teresa Garcia visited the first hospital on the west coast to perform the procedure in a clinical trial.
