HANOVER, Md. (AP) — Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley is urging caution as snow piles up on the state’s highways.

O’Malley told reporters at the Statewide Operations Center in Hanover Wednesday afternoon that rain earlier in the day prevented the State Highway Administration from effectively applying road salt.

He says it’s going to be a treacherous evening rush hour and those who don’t need to travel shouldn’t venture out.

O’Malley says the main challenge will be for drivers, especially along the Interstate 95 corridor. But he says the heavy snow also could bring down tree branches and power lines.

O’Malley says the MARC commuter rail system has adjusted its schedule to accommodate people leaving work early.
