Lockport will be under a Code Blue advisory tonight and Saturday night due to expected extreme cold temperatures, according to a communication from Mayor Anne McCaffrey's office.

The Code Blue advisory -- from 8 p.m. until 8 a.m. each evening -- opens the warming shelter at the Salvation Army, 50 Cottage St. to the areas homeless or those without heat.

Code Blue is a collaboration between the Dale Association, Salvation Army, Lockport CARES, St. John’s Outreach, Grace Episcopal, The Chapel, the Lockport Police Department, and the Grigg Lewis Foundation to care for those without heat and/or shelter this winter.

Code Blue can be called from Oct. 1 to March 31 when weather conditions indicate the temperature will drop to 15 degrees or lower overnight. It is open to any homeless or elderly in need, along with people, who for whatever reason, have lost heat or had a water pipe burst. Tonight's low is anticipated to be around 12 degrees, while Thursday's low is forecast as 17 degrees -- before accounting for wind chill.

During the day, the Lockport Public Library, St. John's Outreach and the Salvation Army are open to the public and to those looking to take shelter from the cold.
