Warming centers, opened when temperatures plummet, provide a heated location for residents to warm up and relax.

Local residents seeking warmth during the day today can visit the San Joaquin County Community Service Center at 415 S. Sacramento St. in Lodi. It will be available from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.

The City of Lodi did not open any official warming centers because other organizations were already meeting residents’ needs, according to city spokesman Jeff Hood. However, most city offices are open today.

Residents can go to Hutchins Street Square at 125 S. Hutchins St. The library is closed on Fridays.

The Salvation Army’s Hope Harbor shelter at 622 N. Sacramento St. was open again Thursday night for those seeking a respite from the icy weather. The site opened Wednesday night when temperatures dipped well into the low 20s.

The City of Galt opened a warming center at the Parks and Recreation Department office, 610 Chabolla Ave., on Wednesday and Thursday nights. No one had come by early on Thursday morning, so the warming center closed early, but it was open again Thursday night.

Today’s daytime high is forecasted to be 46 degrees with an overnight low around 36, according to Accuweather.com, a private forecasting firm.

However, overnight temperatures are expected to dip into the 20s again this weekend, according to Accuweather.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
