Sure; no problem. 40=BAF or 80=BAF,=20
no difference to a kiln, and if it=20
ain't actually frozen, no difference=20
to the clay, either.=20

If the pots are dry, there should be no problem.

This a sorta roundabout reply to the 40 aspect of your query.
A friend has her computer-controlled electric kiln in her garage.
It states that it is not to be fired unless the ambient temperature
is above 40. Is there a reason for this? Can't the kiln be slowly
brought to temperature?
