The National Weather Service has posted a winter weather advisory for Ottawa County and most of west and central Michigan until 10 p.m. Saturday.

Forecasters say we can expect as much as 6 inches of snow by Saturday evening, with locally higher amounts possible in southwestern Michigan.
Roads will become snow-covered and slick, visibilities will be reduced at times, and drifting snow will impact snow-plowing efforts on north-south roads in open areas.
