Default Should I wash my car tomorrow?

Its going to be about 38F tomorrow afternoon. Any bad sideeffects with washing the car with cold water, I will wash by hand using a bucket. Also what the best way to dry the carpet? blowdrier? leave the car outside with doors open? cause I've been having frost build up on the inside of the windshield and I think the back window too cause it takes forever for the back to defrost.

We have a ton of salt on the roads and schooling is starting on Monday, so I want to have the car pretty or at least salt free.

No side effects minus the possibility of catching a cold.

Use a bucket of HOT water, and buy some all weather subaru floor mats.

It'll be alright, I just washed the car with warm water last last week when it was 30F. This morning the dash read 19F, and I'm sure the windchill makes it much lower.
