You will get the whitish "mayo" deposits on your oil filler cap anytime the 
oil is cold enough--not outside temporatures.  It is mostly the water (or water 
vapor) held in suspension by the oil additives.  When the oil gets hot enough 
it will disappear.  It just means you oil is doing one of its many jobs.
