I have the same issue. Seems to only happen when it's a bit cooler outside.

^Mine's the same way. Once the temp reaches about 60-65 it's completely fine. Do you feel it in the brake pedal as well?

It is your lifters ticking. They are hydraulic lifters and in the cold weather, on older engines, they often will tick. Once the engine gets to normal operating tempurature the ticking noise should go away.
