Colder temperatures the next three nights triggered the city of Gainesville to open its Cold Night Shelter (CNS) Program.

According to the National Weather Service (NWS), temperatures will dip to 44 degrees on Monday night and are forecasted to be 40 degrees both Tuesday and Wednesday nights.

The cold front led the city to activate its CNS program, which will remain in effect until overnight low temperatures rise above 45 degrees. The CNS program normally runs from Nov. 1 through March 31.
