My eldest daughter used to get a night time/early morning cough which would be not about during the day. It turned out she was asthmatic and the cough was the only obvious sign of the asthma. It wasnt till she was put in the childrens hospital for several days for investigation of her night/early morning cough was she diagnosed. (Then 1-2 years later she had her first (and very serious) asthma attack!!). The cool damp air can trigger cough.
