On my 2.2 and 2.5, I always used 5W30, year round, in New Jersey. The reason being that with 5W30 it's quiet on startup, with 10W30 it rasped a bit for around ten - twenty seconds, even in summer. I spoke once to someone at Chrysler and they said 5W30 was the ideal in most climates. As you move further South maybe 10W30 is good for summer. I had a '91 and a '93, 2.2 and 2.5 respectively, and later had a turbo that I used synthetic in.

I believe the owner's manual says 5W30 is good for most temps but you really need to check it before choosing a weight.
