Killing cold wx weeds in Memphis

I live in Memphis Tn.I have a good stand of common bermuda which is currently dormant.With cooler temps currently (70 high 32 low)what can you folks recomend I use to kill the abundant weeds.When the daytime temps get warmer I use MSMA, however in these cooler temps that will not work. I prefer to use a liquid weed killer with my spray cart.Thx for any suggestions.

2,4-D.Use the Esther in colder weather and the Amine in warmer weather(such as temps in the 70's)

As long as your bermuda is dormant you can also use Roundup, but it will need some warm daytime temps. to work.
When all else fails, read the directions

What type of weeds are the problem. The bermuda is starting to green up on the edges already so be careful with the Round-up. If the problem is poa anna, products are avaliable to control it without damage to the desired turf. Also the 2-4d can damage the turf if its applied to heavly. If spot treated you could have bare areas or areas slow to green up. Ive been there done that.
