it is. But earlier today it did not.
GMC Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER TECH replied 8 months ago

usually when its intermittent with colder temps, it is a bad spot in the armature of he blower motor, but nit is impossible to diagnose without it being dead at the time, when it does not work, how long does it last?
