I'm betting its simply the pad material glazes as it cools from your previous drive. This cooled/glazed coating needs to warm up and wear off before the squeal goes away.

From others on this forum, it seems that most claim the squeal subsides after 1K-2K miles.
I've spent the last month or so observing this. The brakes squeal when it rains or is otherwise damp out, but I haven't noticed it on dry days. Perhaps it occurs less frequently in dryer weather. In every case the squeal goes away after first few brake presses.
