Do wet clutches slip more when cold?

Will a wet clutch, on its way out, tend to slip more when the engine is cold? I notice on mine when I first get on it after it has sat overnight or longer, it takes a lot of throttle to get it moving. I thought the brakes were sticking, but if I put it in neutral it rolls easily. After that it moves like normal. I think my clutch is on its way out anyway and plan on changing it this winter, but I was curious if anything else could cause this issue.

I recently took off my wet clutch for the WCD I have 800 miles of abuse turning either 30" or 31" tires using nitrous and going WFO, to my surprise my wet clutch still looked new... When I rode in the winter I didn't notice a difference
