DENSE FOG ADVISORY

Until 11 AM

The National Weather Service in Grand Rapids issues a DENSE FOG ADVISORY until 11 AM for nearly every county in West Michigan save for our Indiana bordering counties of Berrien, Cass, St. Joe, and Branch.  It doesn't mean it won't be foggy there!  The combination of yesterday evening's rainfall, light winds while you were sleeping, and our unusually cool airmass is a near perfect recipe for visibilities under a mile and perhaps as low as 1/4 mile.  This is enough to change how you drive.  Please keep it safe this morning, and slow it down if you can.  Stay with wwmt.com for your weather!

MI Married same-sex couples seek recognition in court

MI Married same-sex couples seek recognition in court  story image

DETROIT (AP) - Hundreds of same-sex couples who were married in Michigan are seeking a court order that would force the state to recognize the unions.
    
A federal judge in Detroit is hearing arguments Thursday on whether to grant an injunction. At the same time, attorneys for the state will ask Judge Mark Goldsmith to dismiss the lawsuit or at least freeze it until higher courts rule on Michigan's gay marriage ban.
    
Gov. Rick Snyder won't recognize more than 300 same-sex marriages that were performed in March, a day after a judge struck down the ban. He says it's better to wait until the entire legal process ends.
    
A federal appeals court two weeks ago heard arguments in cases from Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee.
