You can leave them in, Just do not try to use them until they get back up to 40 degrees and have time to thaw out before you power them up. The liquid crystal displays is what will freeze on them.

OK, I'm different, I remove them for the winter. The word 'liquid' and Wisconsin winters don't mix well.

Remember, they are transported in trucks in cold weather without the benefit of being in a heated trailer. As SYE suggested, let them warm up before powering them up.
