Is it too early to plant strawberries in raised bed in Z5?

My small raised bed of strawberries had some die-back this year and I need to fill in the blank spots. The instructions say to plant when soil temps are at least 50F.

I have a thermometer a couple of inches into the soil, and during the day the temp is in the low 50s, but it's probably a little lower at night. My existing strawberries are just breaking dormancy and starting to grow a little, but not much yet.

A few years back I think I might have killed some by planting too soon. Any help is appreciated.
