Probably the same as any photographic medium.  Higher temperatures accelerate chemical reactions, such as the effects of ozone, so the cooler the better.

Yes, it does make a difference how you store your prints - just as with paper in general: Humidity, temperature, light and any exposure to chemicals can influence the paper base and/or the color. In the best of all worlds they should be stored dark, cool, medium dry and flat in a chemically clean environment. Not that most prints enjoy this kind of treatment. Mine certainly don't and do reasonably well.
