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.

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.

Teenager survives hundred-mile scare after accelerator sticks story image
ROCKWALL, Texas (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A teenager survived a terrifying highway drive in the Lone Star State, with the gas pedal stuck down for more than 100 miles.

For nearly an hour and a half, dispatchers scrambled for ways to help 16-year-old Elez Lushaj.

It happened last December in Rockwall, Texas, but the video is only just now coming out.

Eventually, the teen lost control of his Hyundai Elantra, flipping it nearly 5 times.

Thankfully, he survived, and his family has since hired an attorney.

Hyundai says it's heard nothing about the case.
