Question about feeding and temperatures

As you can see, the temperatures at night here are still getting chilly and I'm worried the liquid feed I'll be using for some new packages I'm getting here soon might get cold in a way the bees won't like. Am I just worrying too much? I hear some people feed just sugar, but thats mostly in winter where I imagine condensation would be more frequent (greater contrast in temperature between the inside of the hive and the outside) which will make the sugar easier to eat for the bees.. but I also know that spring feed is lighter than fall/winter feeds (1 to 1 rather than 2 to 1) so I'm wondering if the straight sugar would be too much to give em this early.
