You can always call or e-mail Arri and ask for suggestions for what to do once the batteries are on-camera and in-use.

Gas stations or car supply stores sell some sort of thermo material for wrapping car batteries when they are not used. You can use this stuff to wrap your batteries and it helps quite a lot. Make sure the batteries are stored in a warm place before you start shooting (don't leave them in the camera truck during nights) and take enough spare batteries with you.

Taking extra batteries, keeping batteries in warm place, and not leaving batteries over night in the truck are all good points.
Also try and get batteries that have newer cells inside, they will last longer.
Good luck and wrap up warm yourself!
