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.

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.

AUGUSTA, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - There is another public hearing Thursday night to discuss the possibility of a missile defense system coming to West Michigan.

The Fort Custer Training Center in Calhoun County is one of four sites where a new missile defense system could be built.   

The goal of the system is to protect the United States against attacks from enemy missiles.

Some fear it would make West Michigan a target for enemy attacks.

Local officials say it could bring nearly 1,800 jobs and pump billions of dollars into the local economy.

Thursday night's public hearing is from 6:00 to 9:00 at the Sherman Lake YMCA in Augusta.
