What would be the pros and cons?
Either would be fine in your location (between those two choices, I'd pick 10w myself). As others have said, using Full Synthetic is a better choice than non-synthetic. And I'll throw in that using a "High Mileage" oil will (typically) give you a better additive package at no additional expense.
