Normally in most cars, when it is cold outside, your power steering fluid is thick, thus, needs more presure to push it through the pump and lines. Same with any oil, in your engine. Once this fluid has warmed up, and you've made a few turns it should work properly. If this continues to happen, check your power steering fluid level, or have it looked at by a trusted mechanic. If you lose Power Steering, all together, it's not fun.
Your cars power steering pump has to warm up for a little while to stop it.

Yes it loosens up muscles and prevents them from tearing. Cold, stiff muscles tear much easier.

Excellent diagnosis ... being stiff and cold is a pretty sure indication of death. (The stiffness will go away, but she'll stay at room temperature.)

Could be that your low on power steering fluid. When it's cold, the fluid is more viscus, but once it warms up and thins out there isn't enough.
