5w-30 will be just fine, I hope you have enough and a new oil filter, if not go buy some.

5W- 30 is fine for cold to moderately overwarm weather, but do check if the API rating is recommended for your engine. The only problem is then, do you have a new filter, and are you sure what is in the bottle is what the label says it is?

Of course the temperature will "affect it" - but not in any negative way. The oil gets just as cold, if not colder, when it's in the oil pan of the car! Not even sure what you're asking about.... You fail to state any details of the vehicle, but is it the correct viscosity for it? Are you concerned that it's not synthetic? It's not until 5 or 10 below zero when you'd need to use 0W-30. So as long as you're not going up to Minnesota or Canada that you'd maybe have to rethink this. All my cars require synthetic oil, and I do switch down to 0W-30 when I head up to the Dakotas if it's going to be 20 below or lower. If you're really worried, use the recommended viscosity synthetic for the winter, and use the cheapo oil from your garage next spring when it warms up.

Without telling us the year, make, and model, I'm gonna say NO, DO NOT USE IT. Ford and Honda gas engines use 5w20, and diesels use 15w40. So again, without the specific identification, DO NOT USE IT.
