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.

AUSTRALIA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - An Australian billionaire is bringing back the Titanic.

Clive Palmer is giving us a sneak peak at the plans for Titanic II, a replica of the luxury liner.

Video showing what the ship is expected to look like debuted Tuesday.

Palmer says the ship will be an exact replica of the Titanic with a few modern twists, like air conditioning and internet.

Unlike its name-sake it will have a full compliment of 18 life boats capable of holding 150-people each as well as two mega life rafts that can hold 400-people.

Palmer stopped short of calling it unsinkable though, saying quote "anything will sink if you put a hole in it."

The Titanic II is set to sail in 2016.
