Car's tire pressure monitor is showing big drop in pressure. Should I be concerned?

Never had a tire pressure monitor in a car before. The recent cold snap has produced an alarm notice that all my tires are now 5 lbs underinflated. Is this just a phenomenon of physics or should I react and put more air in? I assume pressure will go up when I hit the road but have I lost air pressure or not? Worried about underinflation and overinflation. What's the correct response? Thanks for help.
