Multiple locations in Snohomish County provide overnight shelters during dangerously cold weather. Cold weather season generally starts in November and can last through March. The shelters usually open when temperatures are expected to be below freezing (under 32 degrees F) overnight. However, seasons can vary in length and intensity. Cold weather shelters also may vary in hours, days or location.

A round-up of cold weather shelters in the county is provided at It is updated as needed throughout the season. During periods of below-freezing weather, expect the site to be updated daily with shelter openings and closures.
