Climate considerations

Columbia, Maryland experiences four distinct seasons with diverse weather patterns, which can affect your vehicle when parking monthly. The summer's average high is around 85°F, and the winter's average low drops to around 26°F.

During the hot summer months, outdoor parking spaces can expose your car to heat and sun damage. A sunshade or car cover can reduce sun exposure while ensuring all windows and sunroofs are closed can prevent interior damage.

In the winter months, the severe cold can affect your car's battery, tire pressure, and fluid levels. Placing a thermal blanket over your vehicle's engine or using a battery maintainer can help to counteract these effects.

For uncovered outdoor spaces, covering your vehicle's windshield can prevent snow and ice buildup during winter, while a full vehicle cover can protect against both summer sun and winter frost.

For covered outdoor or indoor, unconditioned spaces, the additional shelter can help protect your vehicle against weather elements, but it's still advisable to use a sunshade or car cover during summer and a thermal blanket or battery maintainer during winter.
