I really cannot say for sure. I don't think that slowly fluctuating
temperatures would harm the embryos but perhaps if the fluctuations involved
rapid short cycles with temperatures going to high levels then it might. I
have no hard evidence for this. I have almost always stored my Notho eggs
under constant temperature conditions and I very rarely get belly-sliders.
If you store eggs in an environment where the temperature is subject to
rapid and frequent fluctuations you might try storing the bags in a thick
styrofoam box to help even out the temperature.
How wet is the peat that the eggs are stored in ?

I suppose it depends on what stage of development they have reached. If they
have been under the same conditions for the best part of their development
then, yes, you can probably expect the same result.
