Clutch grabs hard when cold

After a summer of a nicely working clutch, the cold damp weather of Fall seems to correspond with my clutch grabbing when shifting gears (problem worse in lowwer gears). After about 10 minutes of driving (including a fair bit of shifting), the problem goes away.

This car often sits for a week or more at a time in an unheated garage.

Could it be simply condensation on the clutch disc, or is that wishful thinking?

Details: McLeod 3 finger pressure plate, steel flywheel, and stock-type clutch disc
