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.

Tips for staying in touch while traveling abroad

Updated: Wednesday, August 6, 2014

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - If you're traveling abroad anytime soon there are several smartphone apps that can help you stay in touch with loved ones back home for free.

The Facebook Messenger allows you to text, record voice messages and make phone calls to other friends who have the app.

Facebook is also the owner of "What's App" which allows you to send photos, messages and phone calls over a wireless network.

Libon and Viber are two other similar services worth checking out. Both use your data plan to send and receive message but do not charge you for actual minutes during phone calls.
