Steering Wheel Noise? or Power Steering?

Odd questions.

I know after the Jeep is warm and I've made several turns it quiets down, but why does the steering wheel make a loud tone? It does it evenly in both directions (same exact pitch no matter what speed I steer the wheel) . I have plenty of steering fluid. It sounds like it's comming from right behind the air bag. Loud to. Am I hearing a cold power steering through the steering wheel? The sound seems like it's in the cab not under the hood. Is there something else to look at? The temp has been 20-30 degrees for weeks now. I run the Jeep pretty infrequently during the week.
