Cold weather in Florida brings chance of 'iguanas falling from the trees,' forecasters warn

Recommended Posts

It's chilly with a chance of falling lizards.

 

Temperatures in South Florida dropped so low Wednesday morning that forecasters at the National Weather Service office in Miami warned residents to be on guard for falling iguanas.

 

"This isn't something we usually forecast, but don't be surprised if you see Iguanas falling from the trees tonight as lows drop into the 30s and 40s," the NWS Miami wrote on Twitter. "Brrrr!"

 

The sunshine state was seeing the coldest temperatures in almost a decade on Wednesday morning with freeze warnings posted throughout the state, according to Fox News Senior Meteorologist Janice Dean.

 

"It is so cold in Florida, they are setting record temperatures and you know they're afraid of the iguanas falling off the trees," Dean said on "Fox & Friends." "They don't freeze, they don't die, but they do kind of go into a state of hibernation, it's crazy."

 

The low temperatures stun the invasive reptiles, but the iguanas won't necessarily die. That means many will wake up as temperatures rise Wednesday.
