Pressure Washing when cold

Just had my home pressure washed as part of prep for painting. Around 50 degrees during pressure washing but will drop below freezing tonight. Any chance of harm to masonry around trim due to water freezing in the masonry? It's brick veneer.

Should be no problem. You are talking about air temperatures and the wall has plenty of heat in it so any excess water will be gone in hours. It is doubtful you can get the wall saturated from pressure washing anyway.

I've pressured washed in the cold before and never noticed any problems - except for the operator If your brick is currently painted, water penatration would be even less of a factor.

I would be more concerned about having favorable painting conditions!
