If it is very cold, you could be getting the low coolant light because the coolant is actually getting so cold in the radiator that the volume is reduced. By the time you check it, it could actually warm up due to heat soaking and the volume be back to an acceptable level. It kind of seems like a stretch, but is the only thing that makes much sense.
