DALLAS — As of 5 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 24, a Winter Weather Advisory is in place for western and northern Texas. Areas under the advisory will have the best chance of accumulating snow by mid-afternoon.

While the Dallas-Fort Worth area is currently not under that advisory, warming shelters have opened to get people out of the cold and rain.

Here are the ones we know of so far:

Salvation Army

The Salvation Army has opened shelters in Dallas, Collin, and Tarrant counties. 

Two shelters are on standby in Denton County in case temps go below 32 degrees. They'll be at the Denton and Lewisville Corps Community Centers.


The Arlington Life Shelter will start taking people in at 2 p.m. Tuesday. It's located at 325 West Division Street.

If that center reaches capacity, workers will recommend people go to the Salvation Army's Arlington center.
