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.

Third possible sinkhole revealed as a bust story image
SEFFNER, Fla. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - News of a third possible sinkhole in Florida wound up being a bust.

A woman in Palm Harbor, about an hour west of Seffner, called police Monday, worried that the earth was about to open up under her house.

She noticed the floor buckling, and remembered that was one of the signs talked about in the wake of Jeff Bush being swallowed alive by a sinkhole last week.

That hole has grown to over 30 feet wide and 100 feet deep.

It's unclear if crews will ever be able to recover Bush's body.

Another sinkhole opened Monday under a fence a couple of miles away.

No one is believed to be in danger as a result of that hole, however.
