Default Touchscreen goes nuts in cold


Since it got pretty cold here, about -12 to -15 C during the day the phone practically isnt usable outside - screen just starts registering touches when there arent any, opening closing things, changing settings, making calls and so on...this all happens within seconds.
Wonder if this is a normal phone behavior out in the cold or is there something wrong with my device specifically? Anyone else getting this?

I have some chinese screen protector attached but before ripping it off wanted to get some opinions.
