Boy, that all goes against what is the norm... cold temps mean 'wet' paint film, the solvent doesn't flash fast enough. Low air pressure and thick paint usually gives you a very orange peeled finish not a sandy one. With the three conditions you are discribing I'd have thought the paint would be running off.
Are you positive you mixed the proper ingredients? Sounds also like it could be seedy paint. A quick test is to take some paint and pour a little onto like a piece of flat smooth metal. Take a squeegy or something and smooth it out If you can see 'bumps' it may be kicked out. We use grind gages for this to check the grind of pigment.
