SAN ANTONIO – The City of San Antonio is not opening warming centers despite many area schools and businesses closing due to the wintery weather.

The city website says warming centers will “re-open again as required.”

A spokesperson for the city told KSAT Tuesday morning that “warming centers are opened when temperatures are below 32 degrees for a sustained period, or a combination of temperatures and precipitation become dangerously inclement.”

Bexar County public information officer Monica Ramos told KSAT that county officials will continue to monitor the weather but warming centers are currently closed because there aren’t any power outages and city libraries are open.

Ramos said the county will consider opening warming centers if conditions worsen.

City of San Antonio spokesperson Larua Mayes said “the Homeless Connections Hotline is available Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., at 210-207-1799 for shelter resource information. Haven for Hope offers safe, indoor sleeping accessible at all hours.”

Cold rain today, with freezing rain for northern Bexar County and the Hill Country.
