It is by no means ideal to drive with summer tires at cold temperatures, but as long as you drive smart, it won't be dangerous. You will have less traction if you need to make an emergency manuever but it's not like you're going to be all over the place. IMHO, I would not make it a long term thing and would get the proper tires for cold weather.
