I had the same problem with my 2000 Buick LeSabre last year. Took it in and they determined the wheel bearing needed to be replaced. Costs about $300 per bearing, but definitely needs to be replaced as you'd be in serious trouble if the thing went out at highway speeds.

I have a few suggestions for you,
First of all, check your air filter, make sure its clean, not clogged, and doesn't need to be changed.
I don't know how handy you are, but if you are fairly handy, check the idler pulley bearings, if your not, have a shop check it out, as a last resort.
Power steering pump/fluid being low is also a possibility, but thats usually more of a lower pitched whine then what you describe.
You say once the vehicle is warmed up, the whining stops. Does Weather seem to be a factor as well?
Hope I've helped, and don't forget to rate.

Had the exact same problem on my 05' f-150. changed belt tensioner pulley and the belt since I have 78000 on truck. I've put 3500 miles on since and its resolved the problem.
