BALTIMORE (AP) - Gov. Martin O’Malley declared a state of emergency as forecasters predicted 6 to 10 inches of snow would fall in much of Maryland.

O’Malley issued the declaration Tuesday afternoon. Snow is predicted to begin Wednesday night, and much the state is under a winter storm watch.

The Maryland Emergency Management Agency said snow likely will be heavy and wet, endangering trees that could fall and bring down power lines.

A State of Emergency Declaration will allow the state to deploy the Maryland National Guard and waive certain rules and regulations to speed recovery from storm damage.
