If it's on the roller, set the roller in your paint - it won't take long.

It is oil base paint, right? If it's latex you need to thaw and clean them with water.

almost forgot welcome to the forums!

Curious, you already having cold weather in Washington?! Gee, wish we had that problem. For $1.25 why not get new ones? Of course I'm no painter, as marksr adequately knows

Larry, I wouldn't even attempt to use a $1.25 roller cover
It's a fairly common practice to wrap up a brush or roller tightly with plastic [without cleaning it] and then unwrap and use it the next day [or two] Setting the wrapped brush/roller in a refrigerator or freezer will allow it to be stored almost indefinitely. If latex paint/primer freezes it's no longer any good.
