temperature for winter tires

Hi! So, I live in the Boston MA region, and we're pretty cold here now. Consistantly under 10C (sorry, not sure what that is in F). I currently have my winter tires on already. I'm planning to head down to VA beach for x-mas (in-laws), where its reportedly around 20C or so (I'd guess high 60s in F). So I was wondering if I should swap back to summers, or should I just keep the winters.

thanks!

You'll be fine for that trip. Those tires can handled a bit of warmer weather, and you may need them for the trip back up if the weather ever turns nasty.
