you could use PU glue, as long as it isn’t freezing. don’t worry too much about the min temp written on those bottles.
with waterbased glues you better do follow the indicated limit, and if the bottle has frozen you can toss it away.
a good indicator is to see if it cures and becomes transparent when yoy whipe it on a surface. if it turns white it is too cold!
and if you do bring them inside, let the wood heat up a while. its not the air temp that matter but the wood temp!
