    As soon as you can be sure the paint won't freeze before it's good and dry.

    I'd wait if you want it to stay stuck, your going to dealing with morning and evening dew on the walls this time of year.

    I almost fainted they painted a house down the road from me the other day. It was a warm nice day in February. I think the high was 69 or 70. Last night we had 12” of snow.

    I will be keeping my eye on that house.
