BALTIMORE (AP) The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning for much of the Baltimore area and north-central Maryland as the Mid-Atlantic region is hit by its second big snowstorm in a week. Light to moderate snow is expected to fall through the morning as the second wave of the storm begins.

O'Malley says the state is facing the challenge of a dwindling supply of salt in some areas and no room to put any more snow beside roads.
