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

Thanks a lot for your input... That helped my thinking...

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.
