We don't normally report the forecast for Florida, but when it's cloudy with a chance of falling iguanas we bend the rules a bit.

That's right. Falling iguanas are possible in southern Florida.

The National Weather Service says that because iguanas are cold blooded, they become immobile when temperatures drop into the 40s, causing them to fall out of trees.

But don't worry, the iguanas aren't dead, just temporarily frozen, one might say.

Temperatures across Florida range from the 30s to low to mid 40s this week.
