It's not suppose too, have you made sure that the air pressures are at specs in the tires? It's a bit too early for them to start failing, but it is possible, the only other thing I can think of is too much moisture in the air inside the tires, did you have them changed over to winter tires?

I experienced this a couple times on two different cars - when the temp drops so does the tire pressure, ever so slightly but it can be enough to trigger a low pressure light. Mine ended up being about 3lbs low when cold - I live in Arizona so we get some big temperature swings at times - 80 in the day and 30's at night sometimes - it happens

This happens to my tires every fall when temps start getting below freezing. Cold Air is denser, so the pressure will drop some times. Once you drive a bit the pressure will go up as the tires warm. If this continues to be a problem, you might need to get your wheels wire brushed for a better winter seal.
