SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Freeze warnings have been issued for parts of the San Francisco Bay Area, prompting counties to open cold weather shelters to the homeless.

KNTV reports (https://bit.ly/1lO3PaI ) a freeze warning has been issued for Friday at 11 p.m. to Saturday at 9 a.m. in some inland areas. A frost advisory has also been issued for the same period for coastal areas and along the San Francisco Bay shoreline. Temperatures in those areas are expected to range from 32 to 35 degrees.

In response to the forecast, Santa Clara County is opening the South County cold weather shelter in Gilroy starting Friday night, and officials are working with local shelters to add up to 200 additional beds.

Shelters in San Jose and East Palo Alto have also opened their doors before the usual Nov. 30 opening date.
