    Could just be the cold weather. Try a roll inside the house through a window and see if it does it.

    The likely cause is the original lubricant has become thick or migrated to where it doesn't belong, likely as the camera can be almost 40 years old. In cold weather the lubricant acts more like glue. The camera will need a major dis-assembly and cleaning.

    I have an OM-1 that had a similar shutter issue--in certain conditions the shutter would just hang in mid-exposure. A major disassembly and cleaning, as the previous poster mentioned, took care of it. This is a great camera and should be just fine with a little TLC.
