That would be your traction control kicking in.

Either you're being a bit rough on the accelerator, or your tires are bald... or just not inflated properly. Obviously the last is the easiest to check, but while you're at it check the tread depth. You might need new tires, but as I said it's equally possible that the tires aren't inflated properly as that can cause the tires to deform and kick in the traction control.

The colder weather doesn't help either; spots of ice might be a problem depending on how cold it is in your neck of the woods right now... but more likely it's the tires themselves. Oh, and check if they're summer tires; many summer tires become like hockey pucks when it gets cold, particularly run-flats.

Hope this helps
