i'll paint outside with low temp paint latex (DV Permacyrl) as long there's no rain expected and overnight lows stay above 35. In S.D. we usually stop mid to late Oct..

We used Duration lo-temp from Sw right down to 2C (Metric) - works beautifully and actually brushes out nice in the cold temps - longer open time

Wow it must take a long time for the paint to dry at those temperatures. 35 degrees is just above freezing.

I have painted million dollar homes for builders in January in MN!!!! I feel bad for the buyer, thats one reason why I got out of new construction. I stop painting houses at the end of October b/c even if the weather is right, the customers freak out. Freaked out customers = guarantee call backs.
