PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — While surrounding counties plan to keep warming centers open through Monday night, Multnomah County says its shelters are closed.

Although temperatures will be cold enough Monday night for the Multnomah County’s “cold weather alert,” officials said temperatures will not drop low enough for what’s considered the “shared severe weather threshold” which prompts the opening of weather shelters. Instead, the county said outreach workers will be handing out winter gear.

Multnomah County tells KOIN 6 News the decision to open warming shelters is made by both county and City of Portland officials. The shelters are staffed and supported jointly as well.

“Staff met with the National Weather Service for a briefing this morning. The low temperature overnight has a very low chance of reaching 25 degrees, and in the small chance it does reach that temperature, it’s not expected to stay that low for four hours or more,” a county spokesperson said. “We also expect no precipitation and little wind chill.”

Multnomah County told KOIN 6 that four people were treated for hypothermia over the weekend.

Overnight temperatures are expected to stay freezing through early Thursday morning.
