Question about 2004 Chevrolet Malibu
If it is really cold then the rubber insulators that are between the sub-frame and the body may be a bit loose and allowing movement. It may be worn / hard suspension rubbers squeaking under acceleration. Check the whole of the front of the car looking for rusted areas in the body and sub-frame that may be allowing body movement where there should be none.

SOURCE: grinding noise while driving.
a) a brake disc shield is too close to the disc, and it's coming into contact in the circumstances you outline
b) pebbles stuck between the disc shield and the disk
c) dried out wheel bearings
d) worn Universal Joints in the drive shafts
e) worn A/C pump
f) worn alternator
g) worn water pump
Is the noise still present above 15 miles an hour and past 1500 rpm when the clutch is disengaged (i.e. gearbox in neutral?). The answer to this question may help you to pinpoint the source. I know it's stating the obvious but the fact that you're hearing a grinding sound means it's caused by something that is moving relative to something else. Again this should help narrow down the cause.
