However, Allegan, Barry and Eaton counties could see between 4-7", and between 3 and 5" could fall along a line from Holland to Grand Rapids to Lansing. 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.
