How old is ur battery? My money is on battery.

Edit: O2 sensors are cover under 60k emissions warranty if that still applies.

It is probably bleeding off residual fuel pressure. There is a check valve within the low pressure fuel pump that hold the fuel in the lines/ fuel rail. If the valve fails the fuel back flows into the tank- then you need to crank the vehicle a while to get the fuel back up to the engine. My $ is on the in-tank pump, if we are guessing.

If you have one of those jump packs just make sure car is starting slow then slap it on and see if it starts right up. I don't get how fuel would be affected based on temps? Doesn't hurt to check it out though.

I had opposite problem would bitch and moan on cold mornings and would then start right up after it warmed up. Then it died and I replaced the battery all good.

Was also thinking maybe the fuel filter could be the issue
