Boost psi in cold weather

It's -27 out this morning and on flat ground turbo psi can reach 20. Is this just because its so cold out the air more dense and harder to move

Haha I believe it I'm working close to peace river it's chilly and it's only going to get colder haha. I figured out my problem I put cardboard infront of my intercooler because I need to get a winterfront. (The all season grill inserts don't cut it) I cut a hole in the cardboard to allow the fan to get some airflow and that lowered the boost dramatically. Still higher then normal because of the cold.
