Have you checked the fluid level? If your transmission has a lot of miles on it, it can take a bit for pressure to build up enough for things to operate correctly. I suspect your transmission in on the way out but you could do a fluid/filter change and put some Lucas transmission fix in it, maybe it will help.

I'm assuming it acts up with the temperature outside. When its colder you'll notice what your experiencing. Its in need of a filter and fluid top up. I wouldn't suggest flushing the trans just pull the pan install a new filter and top off the fluid and button the pan back up with a new gasket.
