45-50F is a good cutoff temperature for exterior painting. Many exterior acrylic paints can be applied down to 35F but they still need some time to cure before temperatures go below freezing.

Humidity is also important. as the humidity rises so does the cutoff temperature. Paint takes longer to dry to the touch and cure with higher temperatures.
