ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Gov. Martin O’Malley is urging residents to prepare for 24 hours of nasty, wet and icy weather.

The governor gave a briefing on preparations the state is making for a winter storm that is expected to arrive in Maryland Wednesday evening.

O’Malley says the power grid that supplies the state with electricity is experiencing an extra burden from cold temperatures, and he’s urging residents to conserve power. The state has been in touch with utility companies, which have been bringing in crews in preparation of power outages.

The governor also is recommending people avoid driving after 10 p.m. Wednesday, when storm is expected to start.
