Worst case, it peels and you have to scrape it off and do it again.

Depends, if it was really an issue, it wouldn't hold and you'd be able to tell the next day. If it held on and looks good a few days later, I wouldn't worry about it unless something does happen. It may have done something detrimental to long term durability but I can't speak to that, I just know first hand what happens when painting in less than ideal conditions. If you were within the specified conditions when you painted and it stayed that way for 6 hours, I'd say you're probably fine if you're not seeing signs of the paint not sticking yet. I've found humidity seems to be more of a factor than temperature. What did you paint, if it was the side of the house, the temp may have dropped but your house will radiate heat so the surface may not have gotten as cold as you think.

You should be okay. When they say that the paint is rated for 35F then there is usually a safety factor in there. I assume if you say it got below freezing you are talking low 30s, not subzero temperatures. My guess is that it had already cured by the time it reached those freezing temperatures, which was probably early morning rather than just after you finished painting.

By the way, we are still enjoying mid 80s here in Florida.
