‘Falling iguanas’ forecast in Miami climate document | Global Information

A weather forecast for the Christmas period in Miami has predicted cold temperatures in the next few days – with a sprinkle of falling iguanas.

The projection, by the National Weather Service in Florida, wrote on Twitter that low temperatures will be in the 30-40F range (0 to 4C), meaning “falling iguanas are possible.”

With no further information, the post added: “Keep up with forecast changes and stay warm!”

This news may come as a surprise for some – but for those in Florida, it is not atypical and occurs most winters.

The lizard is cold-blooded, meaning it gets the majority of its energy from the sun’s warmth.

The iguanas are typically fine after losing their grip – they slowly defrost and start moving again.

However, if cold temperatures persist for a long period of time, a frozen iguana may die.

The same thing happened earlier in the year, with people sharing posts on Twitter about the iguanas they’d seen on pavements.
