Tigers spring training home "will heat up soon." Above map still shows Dodgers in Fla. but otherwise is a likable map. A clearer map is at end of this post. "The cold weather Sunday morning set a record but temperatures are expected to begin warming up.

The low temperature of 31 degrees recorded in Lakeland early Sunday broke the record of 32 degrees set in 1955, according to the National Weather Service.

Even chillier temperatures were forecast for early today.

But it will heat up soon. Today the high temperature is expected to be in the low to mid-60s and on Tuesday, temperatures will reach into the 70s. The low Tuesday is expected to be in the mid-40s.

On Sunday night, the American Red Cross opened two emergency shelters in Winter Haven and Lake Wales because of the cold weather.

Erin Pavano of the American Red Cross said that as of about 9 p.m. Sunday, no one had registered to stay at the shelters.

In Lakeland, the Talbot House said all of its beds were full in the women's and men's sections. The shelter also opened the dining room to allow people to sleep on the floor."
