Get Out of the Cold with Tri-Cities Warming Centers

A Cold Front has Brought Frigid Temperatures and Snow to the Tri-Cities.

The cold area temperatures are bringing some challenges to some in the Tri-Cities as winter has arrived. The current cold front has brought snow and cold temperatures and has put some of the population at risk as they may be directly exposed to the cold. More snow is expected to fall in the area over the weekend, and temperatures could plummet into the negatives with the windchill.  Temperatures will creep back to the low and mid-30s next week. To combat the cold, temporary warming shelters are being set up in Pasco, Richland, and Kennewick.
