Squeaky brakes at 5K?

Perhaps it's the <32F temps, but my brakes have started squeaking over this last week. Will wait for it to warm up tomorrow/next day - but they were rather loud today, much worse than yesterday, even my wife noticed.

I plan on going to the dealer for oil change in early Mar, hope they don't get much worse as the winter progresses. Anyone else hearing this?

1st check your pad depth, make sure they are not completely worn through

2nd, usually aggressive brake pads squeals, specially during the cold. Can be cure with some lub on the backing plate, or just take it to an empty highway and do hard braking from 70 mph down to 30 or something, repeat a few times, to bed in the brakes and it shouldn't squeal anymore.
