door doesn't close when cold

My driverside door wont latch when it's below 20F outside untill the car warms up 10-20 min depending on temp. I've tried all kinds of low temp lube in that area. anything else to try to get it to work when its cold. been like that for a few years. always meaning to fix it in summer.

Hello and good day:

I would spray some "P.B. Blaster" or "Liquid Wrench" onto the Locking Latch mechanism on the door, and try to get it down inside the door itself.

You may need to pull the door panel off, and lube the inside too.

I live up here in Green Bay WI, and it seems it happens also. I spray the S...t out of it every year.
