This happened to me on my '87 245.
It was a cracked distributor cap. Just a hairline, but enough.
Also check all the electrical plugs and connections under the hood.
If there is any corrosion or anything amiss clean and or replace as necessary.
Also check for wire insulation deterioration. This is a problem on some '84 to '88 240s.

perhaps you need a new cap and roter a new spark plug wire set. they don;t like moisture. also check to see if you have any broken or leaking vacuum hoses. the worse case senerio would be that your head gasket is leaking--at cold temps a little antifreeze will enter until everything warms up and it seals shut due to metal expanding. but since you say it's cold weather only--this probably wou;dn't be the case. good luck.
