Noise at startup, please help

I have a weird engine noise primarily in the mornings after I start up the car. It gets really loud especially when I am turning when going at slow speeds like turning from my driveway after start up. It seems to be louder when going slower than accelerating. I can hear it when I am turning while decelerating in the morning (i.e. pulling up to turn on side street).

It sounds like a loud whine, maybe a belt. It almost gets loud enough in the morning that it sounds like something is stuck somewhere but I doubt its that simple. After I drive for a while the noise is essentially gone and later in the day it really isn't around either.

Any help is appreciated?? Thanks!!

If you're noticing the sound at slow speeds while turning it may be the power steering pump. See if you hear it when sitting in Park, and turning your wheels in either direction.
