The Prado Day Center in San Luis Obispo will open its warming center for those seeking shelter from possible rainstorms Sunday and Monday nights.

Beginning at 4:45 p.m., guests may check in at the center at 43 Prado Road, where they are provided with a hot meal and a place to sleep. Guests may arrive at any time but cannot return if they leave.

Pets are allowed, and smoking is permitted in designated areas of the sobriety-based center.

The warming center closes at 8 a.m., but clients can access regular Prado services starting at 8:30 a.m.
