I got in my car this morning and my tire pressure was low.

30 psi in front left, 31 in front right, 30 in each rear.

I'm sure this is because the temperature dropped from 75 yesterday to 45 this morning. Should I re-inflate to spec, or wait until it heats up to see what the levels are at? Generally, the weather will be around 75-80, and I don't want to ride over-inflated when the temperature gets back up.

You should put air in your tires if they are low before you hit the road. Do not drive on underinflated tires.

If the weather gets really hot again, check your tire pressure and adjust as necessary.

Recommended tire pressures are assuming the tires are stone cold - that's when you take pressures and adjust per the owner's manual.
