Not necessarilly a flat tire but a tire that's under inflated. Take out your tire gauge & start checking.
Yes, I think the weather is a factor in this case since I also have to do this to my tires when I drive it for the 1st time after storage.

yah no worries, just check your tire pressures... my sensor usually comes on when suddenly it gets extremely cold out... remember, extreme cold temps affect tire pressures.. its a great warning system as we should be checking our tire pressures regularly anyway.
