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.

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.

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A new report shows teen driving deaths rose sharply last year, reversing a decade-long trend.

A national group that represents state highway safety offices says deaths of 16- and 17-year-old drivers in crashes jumped 19 percent in the U.S. over the first half of 2012.

That's compared to the same period from the previous year.

This comes after a dramatic drop in teen driving deaths from 2000 to 2011.

The report does not say what may have been the cause of last year's sudden increase.
