Oil Viscosity Question

Hello,
My son has a 2005 Honda Accord, 6 Cyl.
The Manual says to use 5W-20 Oil.
He's having a rough time finding it around where he lives.
Would 5W-30 be O.K. and safe ?
Any ramifications if used, caveats, etc. ? He lives in New England; cold winters.
Thanks, Bob

It's available in every store I go in (CT, MA). Amazon also carries most all brands of it.

5W-30 will do just fine. No need to worry about damage of any kind.
the 20-weight part is only intended to help conform to certain government regulations that automakers were required to meet when the car was certified for sale in the US.
