Sounds like in cold temperature there is a lack of oil to vital moving parts of engine. Try changing oil to a lighter weight for example 5w-30 or 10w-30. After doing this have oil pressure checked manually with a handheld guage and make sure there is good oil pressure in engine. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA.

SOURCE: loud whirring noise at start-up
The first thing to check would be to make sure the power steering reservoir is not running near empty, locate the filler cap for the power steering pump it should be marked and then add the appropriate amount making sure you don't over fill, that may make the sound go away if not we must move on to the next possibility, by the way if the noise gets louder when you turn the steering wheel it is most likely the power steering pump or fluid level is low.

Sounds like a hydralic lifter issue. These lifters operate the cylinder valves and run off oil pressure. When the engine is cold and the oil is thick worn lifters tend to rattle. When the engine warms up, everything expands and the lifters stop rattling. There is no easy cure for this except replacing the lifters. Sorry....
