WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY & WINTER STORM WARNING

SATURDAY EVENING THROUGH EARLY MONDAY

 A strong storm will be crossing the Ohio Valley Sunday, bringing snow to West Michigan, with some areas perhaps seeing as much as 10-14" 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.

NEWSCHANNEL 3 - Gas prices are surging sooner and faster than ever before this year.

AAA reports the national average is $3.75 as of Wednesday morning.  That’s up 45 cents from last month.

Gas in Kalamazoo averages $3.87, higher than the national average, according to GasBuddy.com.

And prices are expected to keep getting worse.

Experts say gas should continue going up at least five cents a week until early April.

We could see prices at the pump at an all-time high this spring, 20 to 50 cents higher than they are right now.
    
In fact, in Southern California gas is already nearly $5.20 per gallon.
    
Prices are expected to remain the highest in California, the Midwest and the Northeast.

Gas prices typically climb from February through Memorial Day.
