Window Replacement in Winter -- Bad Idea?

I would like to get the two windows in my family room replaced. They are 30 year old aluminum windows and are very drafty. However, I'm concerned about having them replaced when the temps are so cold (20's at night and 30's during the day) because of caulking and paint. Should I hold off until it warms up a bit? If there are a couple days when it stays above freezing, should I go for it? I may just install a couple of those plastic sheets over the windows and wait it out until the Spring.

I'd wait.
Got a picture inside and out so we can see how hard this is going to be?

The outside of the window is surround in 1x6 wood trim and the inside is flush against the drywall, so not exactly the easiest of installs. Think I'll just hold off.
