Cold temps is less of a problem than the high temps - you just have to adjust clothing and riding style. Ride easily becuse you dont want to be gasping in great lungfuls of -40 air. I never commuted below 5F, but my son commuted 8 miles at -15F for a few days last winter (he uses Nokian studded tires). Beware, cycling is addictive. Another thing you will need for the winter are good lights and batteries that stand up to the cold.
