None of that matters...what matters is how warm you'll be keeping the room with the spiders in it.

Keep it higher than 65 and you should be fine. It could even be argued that they would be ok without any extra heat, as long as the cold temps aren't for more than a few hours.

I didn't start running my space heater until a couple weeks ago. Before that, the temps were getting to the low 60's and maybe even lower than that and my T's were just fine. :)

Well, yes, prolonged cold can cause harm to your t's. An overnight low of 50 isn't such a big deal though...

What are the temps in your house right now? I doubt the outside temps at night will affect the inside temperature all that much. Maybe drop it a few degrees but that's it.

Then there's no issue...

If the house is kept at a constant temperature, it doesn't matter what the outside temps are, ever.
