Cold Weather Tranny Issues

Gentlemen, looking for some viewpoints as to what could be causing the following to my 98 528i....Basically I am just recently finding that when my car is cold (which is every morning, since I park it outside on the driveway) I have major difficulties getting the car into gear (it is a 5sp manual). Getting into reverse is nearly impossible, causing me to jam and grind it into reverse. From there the gear changes, especially lower gears, are very stiff and challenging. At first I though I might have lost my clutch, but I do not think the clutch is the problem, as once in gear etc., the driving is just fine.

Any suggestions as to what could be the issue here?

Much appreciated.
