engine surging when cold

This is kinda weird. Now that its cold out. when i first leave if i set my cruise control it the RPM's will fluctuate quite a bit before it shifts to OD. It only does this the first time its run for the day and only if the cruise is set any ideas?

thick trans oil doesnt allow the tranny to do things as efficiently...that and thick oil for the engine could have a bit to do with it. Ive never actually seen this concern that i know of but those are a few ideas....
