Hard steering in cold weather?

I have a 2004 E46 M3, and the last couple of winters it has developed an annoying habit. Living in the Northeast, it gets down below freezing in the winter. Not the hard core below zero much, but into the teens and 20s.

Anyway, when my car sits outside during the day in the cold weather, and I come out at night to head home, the steering is VERY hard for a very short period of time. By the time I'm out of the lot and down the street a couple of blocks its back to a reasonable amount of effort.

Just wondering if anyone else has experienced something like this and what the cause might have been. Other than this short amount of time when the car has been sitting in the cold everything else is fine.
