The cable will be fine in snow and water as long as the outer sheath
remains intact. After installation, the biggest threat is likely to be
UV. This will break down the polymer chains in the sheath causing it
to become brittle and crack. If you are on a north wall, it will
probably last for years. On a south wall, one good summer could do
significant damage.

It is hard to say what would be sufficient for you without seeing
exactly where and how the cable is to be fitted. If changing the cable
in the future is not going to be easy, then invest in exterior grade
now and be done with it :-)
