5seconds squealing belt on start up

Afternoon,

My cars started to squeal like a pig for the first few seconds when cold. Is this likely a belt tension issue? Or is there a common issue?

It's silky smooth and quiet otherwise as far as I'm aware.

Thanks

Just an update, magically stopped, so must be atmospheric conditions. Done it once since.

Yes quite often a belt will start/stop squeaking with a rise or drop of ambient temps, and humidity, its very common.
