WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY, WINTER STORM WATCH

SATURDAY EVENING THROUGH EARLY MONDAY

The National Weather Service has issued a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY for all of West Michigan except counties along the Michigan-Indiana border, effective from 7 pm Saturday until 6 am Monday. A strong storm will be crossing the Ohio Valley Sunday, bringing snow to West Michigan, with some areas perhaps seeing as much as 10" of accumulation. Snowfall will be heaviest south as opposed to north, so along/south of I-94 is where the highest accumulations are expected. 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.

The National Weather Service has issued a WINTER STORM WATCHfor the following counties in West Michigan, effective from 7 pm Saturday until 10 pm Sunday: Berrien, Cass, St.Joseph, Branch, and Hillsdale. A strong winter storm moving into/across the Ohio Valley will bring periods of heavy snow to the Watch area, beginning late tonight and extending through at least Sunday evening. Forecast models indicate between 7 and 10" of accumulation are possible. Additionally, strong winds will cause blowing and drifting snow. Driving conditions will be hazardous Sunday. Travel is not encouraged.

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Health officials say an Ebola outbreak is unlikely here in the United States.

An outbreak has already killed more than 600 people in West Africa since March.

Currently, there are no travel restrictions to the region hit by the disease.

However, last month, the CDC issued a mid-level travel advisory for health workers.

Two American aid workers in Liberia have tested positive for the virus and are being treated in Africa.

Health officials say it's important for people to know that those with Ebola are not contagious until they show symptoms.
