The warming up is not enough to do this without also having some other problem. The tire wasn't properly seated on the bead, or the tire was defective. Going from below freezing to room temp will only add 2 or 3 PSI, and tires are rated usually at least 50% below their bursting pressure.

It does sound like the tire was inflated way too far anyway, though.
