Upgrading brakes in winter time

My 335 brakes started making that squeaking sound a couple months ago, it happens after the brakes are warmed up and travelling at a lower speed. As Iím sure many have explained before on the post, itís due to the brake dust build up on the brake sensors. I was planning on upgrading my brakes this coming summer with some slotted and drilled rotors and some new pads and sensors, and since most of my driving to and from work now is pretty short distance, the brakes rarely get warm enough to make the sound. But occasionally I make longer trips and the squeaking is getting louder and is EMBARASSING!

Do you guys think itís wise to upgrade the brakes sooner during the winter timeÖ or should I just stick it out and wait till spring?
