HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Frigid temperatures are on the way. Several cold weather shelters along the Mississippi Gulf Coast will remain open over the next two days to give those in need a chance to avoid the chill.

Crews are getting ready to open the Salvation Army Cold Weather Shelter in Jackson County for those in need of a warm place to spend the night. The shelter on Nathan Hale Avenue in Pascagoula will be opening up Monday at 4:30 p.m.

In addition to a cot and blanket, the shelter also offers dinner and breakfast, a place to shower and laundry services.

Over in Gulfport, the cots will be out at the Salvation Army shelter on 22nd street. Doors will open at 4 p.m. If you would like to volunteer at the shelter, click here: http://www.supersaas.com/schedule/Salvation_Army_Gulf_Coast/Cold_Weather_Shelter.

The Kenny Fournier Multi-Purpose Center on Automall Parkway in D'Iberville will open at 4:30 p.m. Dinner will be served, and the shelter will close at 7 a.m. the following morning.
