How long do I have to test after sample?

I cant be at home during the day to test my CYA where the sun is at my back.
Can I take a sample before leaving work and test it a few hours later when the sun is out?
Does a sample skew the test results if waiting too long?

I think what messes the test up is, the water being too cold. I have been told to bring inside the house to warm up, then test. So I guess this would make waiting a little while just fine.
