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.

VATICAN CITY (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The College of Cardinals is holding its final meetings before the process to begin the vote for the new pope officially starts.

Monday's meetings are designed to allow the cardinals to get to know each other and talk through the problems facing the catholic church.

The voting process known as conclave begins Tuesday and there's a sense that some names are starting to emerge.

"A week ago we would have said, 'Wow we've got a lot of work to do.' But now you see a sense of reservation and trust and faith," said Caridnal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York.

The first vote will be held Tuesday afternoon in the Sistine Chapel.
