With the information that you’ve provided, I think you are describing an exhaust leak. It’s not uncommon for a minor exhaust leak to tick, especially when cool, and then go away as it warms up. It can also increase when accelerating due to a build up of pressure as the engine strains to accelerate. There could be a crack in the exhaust manifold, a crack in a pipe, or even an exhaust gasket that may have failed. Colder weather can have an adverse affect on the situation, as the components will heat and cool at a faster rate. If this is something you feel you could use a hand in identifying and/or repairing, contact a certified mechanic, like those available at YourMechanic.com.
