Default oil light

I know that the oil light is an issue on our cars. Does it make any sence that the oil light would come on more when it is cold out, after driving it for at least 1/2 hour? I will check the oil again tomorrow morning when I get out of work but something doesn't seem right. It was 20 degrees out and I am using synthetic oil. The light was only coming on after I'd get on the car a bit. I will be changing the oil pressure switch but when it gets warmer.
