Temperatures are expected to dip to -15 around 3 am, continuing to drop until they reach a low of -23 with windchill at 8 am. Temperatures continue to hover between -20 to -15 throughout the day and into the evening.
The Warming Centre is a relaxed space that allows community members to come in from outside and stay warm on cold days. The idea is that we are offering an alternate space from the cold and weather until the library and other spaces open up and/or for folks who are unable to access other warm spaces.
In order for the Warming Centre to open Environment Canada’s forecast will be calling for -15 degrees or 25 cm of snow. Occasionally, the Warming Centre may open due to other weather conditions at the discretion of the organizers.
The Warming Centre is located in the basement of St. Matt’s Church, at 1479 Barrington St in Halifax. Entry to the Warming Centre is the door to the left of the church, down the large set of stairs into the side yard.
