Cold weather and outdoor tile....

Hey guys,

I live in SW Minnesota and it was 78 degrees here yesterday. I laid some tile on a concrete pad outdoors with laticrete mortar. Next week it's only supposed to be in the 60's for highs. Can I grout at that temperature? If so, are there any precautions I should use? I am using laticrete spectralock. Thanks!!

LATICRETE SpectraLOCK Grout: Surface temperature range for installation must be above 40°F (4°C) and less than 95°F (35°C).

If you read the package that the grout came in it will tell you what the limitations are, mixing instructions and conditions needed.
There is a right way and a wrong way, take your pick!!
You can only choose one!
