Same problem in NJ. Has been below zero in the morning. Problem could be rapid drop in temperature which cause any water in nozzles to freeze. I imagine the openings are quite small. I thought they were heated (had that on a Passat GLX so I am surprised these are not). I am going to try a winter mix of fluid, but this really should not be happening.

When I started reading this post I quickly assumed that you were in California as our wonderful state has 'outlawed' the wiper fluid that was good to minus 20 F. Has your state outlawed as well? The 'replacement' was Rain-X which is a joke. I own a snow removal company and have to drive into the next state (Nevada) to buy the good stuff by the case(s).
