water overnight, when temperatures are lowest. Doesn't matter what size pex, it will freeze. And the repeated freezing will probably not be good for it. Not to mention, no water, perhaps for weeks.
Also on 1/2, you will not like the water pressure, anytime more than one thing is on. Basically, overtime a toilet flushes, you get scalded in the shower.
I would dig a hole on both sides, and put the whole thing below the freeze line. Failing that, perhaps wrap it with some heat tape, and insulate. Ensure that the tape does not get hot enough to damage the pex, or perhaps separate.
