So, I have seen iguanas in south Florida actually “freeze” in the cold and start warming in the sun the next afternoon and simply walk away. Not sure if cold would kill them, and 50 degrees likely not an issue for healthy chams, but why not bring them in if it is not too stressful for them?

I live in Florida and my Cham was out in 40-50 degree weather last year and he lived lol. But I did end up eventually bringing him inside.
On the topic of cold temps in FL I remember last year it got so cold in south FL iguanas were literally falling out of trees because they were so cold! They would warm up and walk away like nothing happened come the afternoon lol
