ALLEGAN, Mich. (AP) - Western Michigan is cleaning up after a winter storm that brought 15 inches or more of snow in some areas, and the National Weather Service says up to 10 inches of fresh snow is possible through Monday night.

The weather service says parts of Allegan, Kent, Ottawa and Van Buren counties got more than 15 inches between Wednesday night and Saturday night. It says fresh snow will start falling Sunday, bringing two to four inches inland and localized accumulations of up to 10 inches along Lake Michigan.

In populous southeastern Michigan, two to three inches of fresh snow is expected by late Monday.

Ice jams have caused flooding along the Muskegon River in Big Rapids. WOOD-TV says at least 60 homes have been evacuated since Wednesday's high water mark.
