Bath vent fan to attic fan temporarily

Not sure where to put this one....

Just replaced the crappy bath vent fan that was imitating the noise of a B-52 on roids and was vented directly to the attic and not to the outside.

Can we temporarily just use the flex duct and tack the end of this close to the attic fan opening in the roof until we get the AC installed and the guys build the rest of the ducting and vent it properly? I am thinking this would be better than it just venting to the attic as the old one was (Especially as we just put up the new insulation)

Since you are on the gulf coast the peril of condensation is unlikely. I sure wouldn't do it up here for even a day.
