Put the pots in full sun. As long as they are in soil and will be planted in a few weeks, full sun is best. Keep them outdoors. They will leaf out in sun or shade but not be able to generate photosynthesis in shade. Leafing out drains the roots from energy so rebuilding the roots before blooming begins is important. Roses in southern Michigan are beginning to leaf out. If you notice this in your neighborhood, that is another indicator that keeping them in sun is the best strategy. If the snowstorm in the west comes your way, tuck them into a garage or shed until the storm passes.
