When is it too cold to repot?

I'm behind on my repotting and I saw that the high for this weekend will be 56 degrees. Is that too cold to repot - no tropicals, just deciduous and evergreens?

Kathy,
It's not really about the temps, as long as they are above freezing,...its about when the buds swell and before they break into leaf. If one or two sets of leaves are already out, you should still be okay. Better to do it on a cool day, than after your trees are already all leafed out.
