Annapolis, MD (November 12, 2019) – The National Weather Service is forecasting temperatures in the 20s during overnight hours on Tuesday and Wednesday. Mayor Gavin Buckley has announced that the Stanton Center will open Tuesday, November 12 from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. and Wednesday, November 13 from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. as an overnight warming center for individuals who need this service. Referrals should report to the Stanton Center by 9 p.m. to check-in.
Any individuals interested in long term shelter or support should contact Justin Bieler of the Department of Social Services at (410) 269-4749. The Stanton Center is located at 92 W. Washington Street in Annapolis.
“It is early in the season and some may not believe it should be this cold this soon,” said Mayor Gavin Buckley. “But we are opening the warming center because the wind chills and the cold temperatures together make it dangerous to be outside.”

The National Weather Service is calling for an overnight low on Tuesday of around 25 degrees with a Northwest wind at 11 to 15 mph with gusts as high as 26 mph.
