Where to find your warming centers

December 5th, 2013 | by Colin Atagi | Comments

It may not be the east coast or the Midwest, but Coachella Valley residents are definitely bundling up in order to keep warm amid low, winter-like temperatures.

But in case you’re short on coats or heating systems, warming centers are open across the desert to help avoid low temperatures, which may be no higher than 60 degrees during the day and in the low 30s at night.
