East Lansing to open warming centers for upcoming extreme cold

By  | 

EAST LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - Two warming centers will open in East Lansing this week to help residents with the extreme cold forecast to hit the area.

Monday through Thursday, Hannah Community Center and East Lansing Public Library will be available as warming centers during their normal business hours.

A major winter storm is predicted to hit the Lansing metro area this week with some of the snowiest and coldest weather yet this winter. Four to eight inches of snow are possible Monday in Ingham County. Though high temperatures will sit in the upper 20s, gusty winds will create wind chills between -5 and -15 degrees, as well as cause blowing and drifting snow. Temperatures will then gradually decrease before bottoming out around -10 Wednesday night into Thursday morning.
