That could be either a front pump gone bad or the shift solenoids are sticky, I'm thinking the solenoids based on what you said about when it gets warm, as the temp comes the solenoids warm up enough to soften the varnish and they start working, you can try servicing the transmission and adding a quart of TransX to the fluid be it may not work, you usually in the end wind up replacing the solenoids.
