Freezing Temperatures Hit Florida, And Frozen Iguanas Are Falling From The Trees

Happy Orlando Iguana

If you're planning on visiting the Orlando area soon, and you've been monitoring the local forecasts, then you've probably been stunned at some of the reports.  For example, early morning temperatures have hit freezing temperatures.  When considering the wind chill factor, those temperatures are much lower.  Now, I don't know about everyone else, but I certainly wouldn't travel to Orlando for a vacation and expect to have a lovely January morning in New England.  So, just how low and how long will these conditions last, and when can we expect "normal" Florida weather to return?  The good news is... very soon!

Candace Campos, of News 6 WKMG Orlando, reported the following brutally cold morning temperatures recorded in central Orlando...

How are these temperatures affecting people?  Well, just look at what they're doing to the poor iguanas... they are freezing into immobility and falling from the trees!

Fortunately, Frank did later tweet that this iguana was warmed in the glorious Florida sun, and walked himself to cover later in the day.

Candace has good news for us though.  Orlando temperatures are expected to climb into the mid 60's by Sunday, and back into the 70's by Monday.

Thanks goodness!  Hope to see you all in sunny Florida soon!
