WINTER WEATHER ADVISORIES

UNTIL 8 PM

WINTER WEATHER ADVISORIES start shortly for all of West Michigan for an accumulation of snow followed by sleet and freezing rain and even plain rain.  The ADVISORIES last until 8 PM everywhere save for Berrien, Cass, St. Joe, and Branch counties where the expiration time is 1 PM.  Snowfall ranges from 1" to 3" near and south of I-96 including Kalamazoo.  North of I-96, amounts may be greater in a range from 2" to 4".  Once snow transitions to freezing rain, ice accumulations of 1/10" perhaps upwards of 2/10" are possible.  Plus, secondary and back roads are likely to remain icy even when air temperatures reach the middle 30s this afternoon.  Please be careful traveling!

Study: Number of teens exposed to e-cig ads skyrocketing

Study: Number of teens exposed to e-cig ads skyrocketing story image
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The number of teens exposed to e-cigarette ads has exploded.

A study published in the journal Pediatrics found the ads are increasing the likelihood that teens will one day try smoking.

Ads for traditional cigarettes have been banned from TV since 1971, but e-cigs are fair game.

Researchers found youth exposure to e-cigarette ads increased by 256 percent from 2011 to 2013, exposing them to 24 million U.S. kids.

The FDA is considering banning the sale of e-cigs to minors.

Currently, marketing and advertising restrictions are not part of the proposal, however.
