squeak/squeal when cold

so since last morning there is a squeak / squeal when the car is cold and im pretty sure its from one of the pullies if not the belt. The noise increases with rmp's what are some techniques on how to find which one is making the noise and what are some common pullies that would do so. The squeak goes away once the car reached operating temp

My car has also developed a very slight "squeak" upon startup. It only lasts for less than a couple of minutes.
My truck, on the other hand, has been squeaking on and off for the last 20 years! And I have never been able to find a sure-fire fix for it!
Sometimes, there is debris caught in the ribs of a pulley (or pulleys) that can be a cause. The same goes for the belt. Also, if there is any sort of liquid getting on the belt, it will squeak.
I personally think that the serpentine belts are more prone to squeaking than the V-belts were.
