More Snow, Dangerous Driving Expected in Michigan

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) -- More snow is coming to Michigan as bitterly cold temperatures maintain their grip.
The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning through Saturday morning for western and southwestern Michigan. Snowfall is expected to range from four to eight inches, and amounts could be higher in some spots.

The weather service says travel conditions could become dangerous, with white-outs and blowing snow covering roads. The area under the warning includes Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, Ludington and Muskegon.

Similar conditions are forecast in northern Michigan, with gale force winds Friday on northern Lake Michigan.

State transportation officials said late Friday morning that part of U.S. 2 in the Upper Peninsula's Mackinac County is closed due to poor conditions.

Many school districts statewide have cancelled classes because of extreme cold. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
