Can't open driver door in freezing rain/snow

During freezing rain or snow my drivers door seems to get sealed shut. All other doors are ok. Car is obviously kept outdoors. I am afraid of pulling the weatherstripping off by pulling so hard. Anyone else experience this? Had the dealer look and they oiled the door lock but there is no issue with the lock. Moisture gets in the door frame and freezes I think. Ideas?

I see there is moisture buildup between the weather stripping and frame. Even when it is dry outside...I bet this is causing the weather stripping to stick to the body in freezing weather. I put some silicone spray on the rubber. This is strange never happened to any other vehicle I had. My 330 has the windows that lower slightly when the door is opened and they sometimes freeze but that is external.
