Since the temperature has dropped the last few days my clutch is engaging much lower than it did just a week ago (almost at the floor). This was literally the morning after one night that was quite cold and rainy. I noticed this started happening last winter to the point where I could barely shift, until one day after a mechanic was doing some other repairs (he must have done something because the point was back up to normal when I got it back) and it was great all summer until this cold night. What could be the issue?

Make sure the clutch fluid is full and clean.
