Hi did you get aresolution to this. Mine is exactly the same and I deduced that it was in the rain. Problem was the wife said that was an irrelevant correlation, it was also when I had a cooked breakfast. Seriously though it is driving me mad. Only had it 6 months and spent 800 on it already (EGR valve replaced and full cam belt service)

EGR replaced and then switched off resolved my issues. Now has 103,000 miles. Just had new inlet manifold and can't believe the difference. Smoother, quicker and better MPG.

I also have had this problem recently, and only since fitting a new EGR valve! Fitting the partial blanking plate seems to help, and I plan to run some Millers through it to clean things up a bit.

Did the OP ever resolve the issue?

Mine seems to do it in all weathers and all engine temps although is perhaps worse once the engine has warmed up.
