KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — Knox Area Rescue Ministries is getting ready for the cold weather. Every night the feels like temperature dips below 32 degrees, their white flag is put up.
The low Tuesday night in some places will dip into the lower 20s. That means the KARM dorms are open and if it stays that cold during the day, the chapel will stay open.
