acrylic and cold weather

Hi
Would it be good for the tank to store, empty, under my deck with a tarp over it to protect from U.V in -30 C or -22 F for the winter? -30 C we only get for a few days, most times it's -15 C or 5 F
I live in Brampton really close to Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

I think that if you put more layers on it, paper for example, it will be ok.
Also, you can capture it in foam plasticю

Hello craw...

I use a galvanized steel water trough for anything that's going to be outside in the winter time.
