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.

VAN BUREN COUNTY, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Female volunteers in Van Buren County are joining women across the United States this week to build affordable housing in their communities.

The all women Habitat for Humanity crew has been working on a home in South Haven since Monday.

It's part of National Women Build Week.

Now, they're working to completely remodel a current home, and the main focus for Tuesday was painting.

The house will be going to a family of 5.

Volunteers say this is a special time, with women working together to give families hope.

Habitat is working on two other homes right now as well: one in Covert, and another in Paw Paw.

The South Haven family will move in at the end of June.
