Tuesday morning's surprisingly pleasant — and relatively cool — conditions will be but a tease as a quick warm-up is in store for the Tampa Bay region.

A cold front made its way through the area on Monday, leaving behind high pressure and clearing skies, according to the National Weather Service.

Residents are waking up to lows in the mid to upper 50s, the crisp feel enhanced by northerly breezes and low humidity.

As the day progresses, though, highs will climb into the low 80s under sunny skies. Winds shift from the east-northeast, but with lower dew points that will spare the region from sticky humidity, forecasters said.

Overnight lows will be in the low 60s.

Expect gradual warming through midweek, forecasters said, with highs climbing back into the upper 80s to near 90. Another cold front, however, brings the chance for gusty winds and severe thunderstorms on Friday that will move out and leave highs only in the low 70s by Saturday.

The low temperatures stun the invasive reptiles, but the iguanas won't necessarily die. That means many will wake up as temperatures rise Wednesday. (AP Photo/Wilfredo Lee)
