Water temperature on delay cycle

What kind of temperature do you have your water in the pan when using the overnight cycle? I usually use cold water as I assumed it would warm up to room temperature overnight. Would hot water cooling down overnight be better?

It will be room temp by the time the cycle starts and the yeast comes in contact with the water in the morning either way.
