I would check the idle up solenoid or cold start valve. Also make sure you are doing regular service on all electrical as it tends to not function as well in the cold. Is your battery still very good or just ok? Make sure there is no corrosion anywhere!

Check/replace your fuel filter. Many times cold weather has a tendency to solidify contaminants in fuel, which cause a partial clog on cold start. Warm fuel suspends the contaminants better, so the filter can clean the fuel as it passes easier.
