Start-up protection is the key, after warm up, engine temperature remains roughly the same, regardless of ambient temperature.

0W40 synthetic, a very good choice.

One must not forget that their are advantages and disadvantages between conventional and synthetic. Seals etc. do not like synthetic too well.

Around 5000 miles is a good time to change the oil, whether conventional or synthetic. Contamination is more of a concern than oil break down.

Disregarding price, I would choose 0W40 synthetic as well.
