Best Oil Weight for Maine

Does anybody no what oil would be best for my 03 F-250 6.0. I have been useing 15W 40 but it is getting too hard to start. I want a 10-30 or 5-40. Is a synthetic blend OK? Average temps at night are in the 20's or colder.

i was reading that the 5-40 full syn helps tremendousily with cold starts. I'm sure others will chirp in. Also the full syn helps keep heat down and prolong your turbo.
