    Yes, it is possible, but it depends on the type of string, for polys and nylon, you're not looking at as big of a problem, but gut is typically not a great idea to leave out in the cold. The good part is most gut is sealed against moisture, so any condensation (if/when it warms up a little) is not going to be a problem. It's not recommended, but it probably won't kill you ;)
