Weird sound while turning wheel

I am pretty good at diagnosing things, but this one is weird.

It only happens when the car is cold, meaning when the weather is cold as well.

When you turn the wheel almost all the way...it is a screeching plasticy noise that sounds as if it is coming from near the center speaker inside the dash.

I have had people turn the wheel and me listen in the engine compartment, and I can barely hear it...almost like it is happening inside under the dash.

But what in the world would be affected in the dash that would be influenced by temp?

Any ideas?
