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!

Stay with for your weather today and always!

Kalamazoo group needs Facebook votes in national contest story image
KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A Kalamazoo group needs your Facebook votes for a national grant competition.

The group, called Rootead in Community, wants to be able to expose local kids to African drum and dance classes, as well as martial arts from a variety of cultures.

The classes would be free or discounted for low to moderate income families who may not otherwise be exposed to this type of art.

The project is one of 4,000 submissions to the State Farm Neighborhood Assist Program.

200 finalists were selected by a youth advisory board, and then Facebook users will make the final selections.
