KENT COUNTY, Mich. — The Kent County Road Commission says a large amount of snow, high wind and low temperatures is creating the perfect storm for drivers Friday morning.

Road crews expect travel to become even more difficult as the day progresses with two to five more inches of snow possible.

The road commission says white-out conditions are possible at times and visibility will be restricted.

The most interesting note from the road commission to keep in mind: roads running north and south will be the most impacted by blowing and drifting snow, which could cause higher amounts of snow on the roadway.

Crews have worked overnight to address state roads and now are moving to county roads with the most volume.

Due to the winds, roads will likely become snow covered again quickly.
