In Arlington, you should be fine with graphite powder.
Up here in MI I have found that taking General Motors' advice on lock lube is best: synthetic motor oil.
Several blustery winter mornings with the cigarette lighter, trying to keep it lit in the icy wind, alternately freezing and burning my fingers, in order to open my doors, revealed to me that the high-priced official M-B lock lube goop may work in Germany, but not here.
Graphite is a great lube; I recall using it on my VW bugs with good results in most weather. But with water + freezing temps I have learned to keep all my locks lubed with Mobil 1, in order to displace the water.
My $0.02.
Now you're suckin' Diesel!
