CDSE follows Ft. Meade for all weather related status reports. Ft Meade Weather conditions are posted by 0500 am each day.

Weather status announcements will be posted on the Ft. Meade Facebook and Twitter accounts or you can sign up for free text alerts by downloading the Fort George G. Meade app from any app store for all weather and base alert notifications.

You can also check the Ft. Meade status by calling 301-677-6323, or visiting the Ft. Meade website:

If the weather event is currently active, the status may change from a delay to a closing so you may want to periodically checkĀ  the site for updates.

When the CDSE facility is closed due to a weather event, employees, contractors and students are not to report. Contractors are required to check with their program managers for further guidance.

When there are delays civilians/contractors/students are not allowed in the facility until the designated time. This is to allow the management company sufficient time to clean the parking lots and sidewalks.
