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.

Study: Counting calories may be 'unrealistic'

Updated: Friday, July 19, 2013 |
PITTSBURGH, Pa. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Putting information about calorie intake on menus may not be an effective way to help consumers make better food choices.

Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University divided more than 1,000 diners into three categories--those who were told how many calories they should eat per day, those who were told how many calories they should eat per meal, and those who were given no guidance.

They found no difference in their food selections.

The researchers conclude it may be unrealistic to expect people to count calories.
