are carbon forks any more brittle in the cold?
 
is there any increased risk of failure due to riding a carbon fork in temps of 32 degrees or lower?

No, they are not.

I bought my FUJI Newest 1.0 in 2009.
Alu frame and carbon forks, been riding
it in winters from day one till this summer
when I sold it. No issues with the fork;
cold, salt, wet, etc.
