WASHINGTON (AP/WBOC)- Mid-Atlantic power companies are preparing for another round of extended outages from a storm threatening to bring up to 14 inches of snow in some locations.
    
The National Weather Service says some of the heaviest accumulation Wednesday night through Thursday will be in Maryland's Frederick and Carroll counties. Some residents there endured four days without power after last week's ice storm.
    
Potomac Edison says snow isn't as damaging as ice, but trees and branches damaged last week could be brought down by snow.
    
D.C. officials said a snow emergency would be declared at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, meaning vehicles parked on emergency routes will be towed.
    
In Maryland, State Highway Administration officials have identified areas along interstate highways for emergency truck parking. Gov. Martin O'Malley said Wednesday it's going to be "a nasty, wet, icy event."
