Gwinnett warming stations to open Thursday due to frigid temperatures over the next week

Gwinnett County is activating five warming stations for residents to receive temporary, overnight relief from long-term exposure to frigid temperatures. The warming stations are available from 6:00 pm until 7:00 am on evenings when temperatures drop below 35 degrees. Residents who visit the sites will be able to warm up, eat a meal, and get some rest.

The temperature is expected to drop down below 35 on Thursday night when rain is also expected and is expected to remain in the 20s all day Friday and Saturday with temperatures dropping down to between 10 and 20 degrees overnight until the day after Christmas. The overnight temperatures will remain below 35 until Thursday, Dec. 29. The County will post notices for evenings that the stations will open on social media at GwinnettOneStop.com.
