HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Gov. Dannel P. Malloy says there is no need to dismiss state employees early, but it could be a different story Wednesday when the second round of a two-day storm rolls into Connecticut.

Malloy, who met with reporters at the state’s Emergency Operations Center, said Tuesday’s snow was expected to end around 2 p.m. and restart around 2 a.m. on Wednesday. He said a half inch or more of ice could accumulate during the second wave, possibly causing power outages and making driving dangerous.

Malloy urged residents and businesses to use the interval between storms to clear decks and roofs.

The governor says the state has spent more than it anticipated on snow removal this winter. But he said residents need to be kept safe and he’ll worry about the cost once spring arrives.
