Why does my 2006 Toyota Corolla LE make so much noise when I start the car in the morning?

I have a 2006 Toyota Corolla LE. I live in Atlanta. It's been very humid and warm throughout the summer. Raining the last couple weeks as well... i share weather because i'm told weather affects cars.
When I start my car, it makes an annoying squeaking sound from something that's rotating because the sound undulates or has like a sine-wave effect to it. maybe axle? maybe belt? it goes along with an idle engine.
it "goes away" as i accelerate. the sound changes just a little depending on which gear i'm in (p, r, or d). i was told once before that it is due to condensation. can anyone confirm this? or better yet, tell me exactly what's going on?
