Yup, no tech package here. I've got the 4.3" display with the little storage cubby on top of the dash. The noise is coming from exactly where BooYaa says it's coming from. If you put slight pressure with your hand just north of the speaker/cubby you should notice the noise diminish or stop.
The weather stripping I've put between the windscreen and dash doesn't really stop noise coming from that area, but more so to push the dash down slightly stopping the noise from just north of the speaker/cubby area. That's what i surmise anyhow.
I suspect this is only a temporary fix as i think over time the weather stripping will compress and lose it's ability to push the dash down. Who knows?
While Temperature might have a small role to play here, I don't think it's the cause. The noise problem in my case got progressively worse over about a month or so forcing me to consider taking the car to the shop which i didn't want to do, or seek out help here in the forums.
I don't worry about it anymore, there has not been a peep since the weather stripping fix and if it does act up again it's going into the shop.
