Update on Winter Storm Gail's Arrival in Frederick

Winter Storm Gail has arrived in The City of Frederick. Snow continues to fall, and roadway conditions are worsening. The forecast suggests the snow may change to sleet and/or ice -- resulting in an icy top layer to the snow and potential refreezing, especially after the sun sets. At this time, the City and Frederick Police ask all residents to stay at home and off the roadways to ensure everyone’s safety.

The Snow Emergency Plan remains in effect and our Department of Public Works is currently in Phase 2 of storm response, which focuses on snow emergency routes. As a reminder, parking along emergency routes during a snow emergency is prohibited. Cars that remain on the routes are being towed at the owner’s expense. To support parking options, street maintenance schedules are suspended through Friday, December 18, 2020, and parking restrictions designated for street maintenance will not be enforced during that period. Downtown parking garages are free through Friday, December 18th at 8 AM.

The City asks that all residents and business owners take precautions in their personal storm response.

  • Please shovel safely by keeping up with the storm, bending low at the knees, pushing snow instead of lifting when you can, wearing breathable layers and good footwear, and staying hydrated.
  • If possible, please clear a three-foot area around nearby fire hydrants.
  • If you need to use a generator throughout the storm at any time, please use with caution. Keep the generator dry and under an open-canopy-like structure. Do not use in a partially or fully enclosed area. Place carbon monoxide detectors to help detect any CO that could make its way indoors.

Please continue to stay informed throughout the event.
