That pot is full of individual palm seedlings so you have many palms. Chrysalidocarpus lutescens, i.e., the mis-nicknamed “Areca palm”, should be okay down to freezing (in a pot; in the ground they should take a few degrees colder) provided it is not exposed to cold/icy rain. Below 32F the potting mix may freeze and damage/kill the roots. Your palms should be okay sitting under the porch roof. I suggest you bring the pot indoors during severe cold spells. Once you head into winter, do not fertilize or overwater.
