Heading to airport in a few hours, so thanks in advance for any input.

I've not heard of any problems, it seems that quite a few people do check them. The baggage holds are pressurized exactly the same as the passenger compartment, but not all holds are heated. I would try to pack it towards the middle of your suitcase, so that it has some protection against cold if your suitcase happens to be near the planes skin.
