The Miami-Dade County Homeless Trust activated its Cold Weather Emergency Plan on Saturday and plans to open shelters for the homeless.

That’s because the National Weather Service in Miami forecast temperatures in the low 50s by Saturday night into the morning.

The wind chill could make it feel even chillier than 50.

Cool temperatures in the 50s and upper 40s in parts of South Florida could last until Monday, the weather service said in its hazardous weather outlook.

Broward has not said yet if it plans to open shelters.

This is the first rain of the year. And it will bring colder days to South Florida
