Winter temperatures are settling back in across Middle Georgia after a brief vacation.
Much colder air is following a storm system that moved through the area Friday.
In Macon, the high of about 66 degrees dropped through Friday evening to an expected Saturday morning freeze.
Saturday's high in Macon will only reach the mid-40s, with 20 mph gusts making it feel colder.
Middle Georgia highs in the 40s are expected for another week after unseasonal temperatures reached 70 degrees in Macon three days this week.
With the return of cold weather, the Salvation Army at 1955 Broadway is opening up a warming center for nights when the temperature is expected to drop below 40 degrees.
The first night of operations will be Saturday. The facility is for people who are homeless or whose homes have inadequate heat.
The Salvation Army is also looking for volunteers to help staff the warming center, and it is also seeking donations of gift cards, new blankets, commercially prepackaged snacks, hand sanitizers and sanitizer wipes.
