Two downtown San Diego inclement weather homeless shelters will open later Monday.

Father Joe's Villages at 1501 Imperial Ave. can accommodate 250 people. Check-in begins at 4 p.m., and guests must be out by 5 a.m. the next day.

PATH San Diego/Connections Housing at 1250 Sixth Ave. has room for 30 people. Guests can check in from 5 to 7 p.m. and must leave by 7 a.m.

Meals will be provided at both locations.

The shelters are opened when temperatures are 50 degrees or lower or if there is at least a 40 percent chance of rain, according to the San Diego Housing Commission, which oversees homeless programs.
