Default Doors freezing shut

Ok.so it's cold as hell in Pittsburgh,PA and my doors keep freezing shut. I keep getting ice build up in the door jam between the scuff plate and the slot on the door. It happens on all 4 doors, making it a bear to get them open. Is this a problem anyone else is having? I haven't washed my car or anything. Not sure how the hell all this water is getting in there to freeze.

I get this all the time, it's really annoying. Sometimes they freeze so hard I'm worried about breaking a door handle trying to get them open.
I've hard that some silicone spray on the door gasket helps, haven't tried it though.

I'm in Shadyside but I work in Canonsburg. I'm also in the Cheswick/Fox Chapel region quite often.

Ok your really close to me Rices auto is a great place...its off of the bridgeville exit like 5 miles. There is also a place on rotue 8 thats good too. If you give me a bit I could get numbers for you, both are far better then any dealer here. Most is cake work so if you need help and have a free weekend....I do them all the time. Last weekend I changed my axles out and this weekend I am helping another replace his Motor mounts and tranny mounts...but thats on a B5.
