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.

Museum lets students role-play governor
LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A new program allows high school students to role-play the big decisions facing governors throughout Michigan's history.
   
The "Governor's Decision Room" unveiled Thursday is located at the Michigan Historical Center in Lansing. Teachers can sign up their classrooms to participate.
   
The first program involves circumstances facing Gov. George Romney during the 1967 riot in Detroit. Future programs will look at the 1930s sit-down strike in Flint and a 1970s agricultural disaster caused by a chemical plant.
   
Students will do research, decide on the best course of action and defend it in a mock press conference. Gov. Rick Snyder helped unveil the learning center that is funded with private donations. He called it a great public-private partnership.
   
The program is modeled after one in Missouri's Harry S. Truman Library.
