With a severe front of cold weather coming into Nashville this evening, Nashville city officials have opened up a cold shelter to help people who need a spot to stay warm.

If you’ve been in Nashville at all this week, you’ve likely seen a lot of cold weather. Nashville residents have endured increasingly colder temperatures this week and a growing storm. Therefore, city officials needed to jump in to protect people from the weather.

This cold front has brought in a nasty storm. Downpouring rain, strong gusts of wind, and temperatures in the high 20s have concerned state officials.

Gusts of wind have reached up to 30 miles per hour, so people are growing concerned about wind chills.

The Shelter

All of this has prompted the opening of a shelter for people to take refuge in if they have nowhere else to go. The shelter is located at 3230 Brick Church Pike. It opens at 7:00pm and closes down the next morning at 7:00am.

Metro’s WeGo will also offer free rides on the public transit line 23B from 7 p.m. until 11 p.m. So hitch a ride to the Nashville cold shelter if you need to.

It does appear that the worst of the storm is behind us, with the cold front now moving east towards Knoxville. However, there are many who are going to appreciate the refuge from the storm anyway.
