Glenelg, MD Overview

Glenelg is a relatively rural community in western Howard County.  Glenelg is named after an old estate in Scotland and is a palindrome, which means it is spelled the same from either end.  It offers a slower pace and tranquil atmosphere of a country setting in close proximity to the major thoroughfares of Interstate 70 and Route 97, and a quick and convenient commute to Columbia, Baltimore or Washington, D.C.  Retail development is sufficient to meet the need for daily goods and services, although regional malls are available within a 30-minute drive.  Most of the housing that dots the countryside is single-family in style.  Those looking for a neighborhood setting will find a selection of newer subdivisions where homes enjoy generous parcels of land.  Local recreational activities include fishing and boating at Tridelphia Lake, strolling through azalea gardens, and hiking at nearby Patuxent River State Park.

Climate and Weather

The Temperature chart displays average high and low values for January and July, and is designed to provide an indication of both seasonal and daily temperature variability. The Weather Risk Index indicates the calculated risk of each type of weather event occurring in the future. This risk is based on historical localized storm events and weather patterns. The national average for each type of weather event equals a score of 100, so a score of 200 would represent twice the risk as the national average, and a score of 50 would represent half the risk of the national average.
