As the region braces for a few particularly cold nights, the cities will be opening up warming centers starting Wednesday night.
Overnight temperatures are expected to be in the upper 20s to low 30s for much of the Sacramento Valley.
The Southside Park in Sacramento warming center can house between 60 and 75 people, and will provide 10 kennels for large pets and carriers for small pets.
No beds will be provided, but there will be chairs and snacks.
Sacramento city officials say the warming center is expected to be open again Thursday and Friday night – perhaps longer, if the cold temperatures continue.
Another warming center in Elk Grove will also be opening up. It will be at the Wackford Aquatic Center at 9014 Bruceville Road.
San Joaquin County officials will also announced a multitude of warming centers. To see the list, head here- http://www.sjgov.org/oes/ExtremeTemps/SJC_WARMING_CENTERS.pdf
