Stiff Steering

I had by bike - Carerra Kraken - out yesterday for the first time in about 3 weeks.

It was a very cold day yesterday. I was only going to the shops and back but it became apparent in the first few yards that there was something up with my bike. It felt like i had a flat front tyre when trying to turn. The steering was incredibly resistive.

any idea what might be the cause? I was hoping it was just temperature with either the lubricant freezing/stiffening or the metalwork having retracted with the cold. Is that likely or am i looking at a repair?
