Winter tires + Flat tire warning?!

Ok this has happened twice, both times driving conditions were damp roads and warm weather (60+ F).
I would be driving, and the flat tire warning would come up. But the thing is when I pull over, I dont see anything that has punctured the wheels, and if I kick them head on(not agasint the sidewall...I know thats re-enforced)...they seem solid. Is this just tires that are over-heating becasue of the warm weather?

Did you re-calibrate the flat tire warning system after you changed the tires?

If not, read the manual.
