 You are perfect.  I don't have the chart in front of me but I believe the board of health looks for temps to be 40 or below. Walter

If your lower temp you either have to increase your yeast amount or lengthen your fermentation time.

Or use warmer water or otherwise try to achieve a higher finished dough temperature (and don't let the dough sit at room temperature before refrigerating).
