Playing pan outside in cold weather

Hi all, I've been told by many pan players that to avoid your drum going out of tune, never allow direct sunlight on your pan, although it's okay to play in the shade in very hot weather.  What about cold weather?  Is there any guidance on a cold temperature threshold not to play in outdoors?  Thanks!
