cold weather caused pressure to drop

Hi there - I don't know if the tag line is 100% true, but it's the only change that has happened.

Kitchen sink has a single-lever w/ sprayer unit, haven't changed since I moved in when inspector showed me a flaw in the install of the unit. But, it's been working fine for the past 8 months or so. Weather turned cold and then the water pressure for both hot and cold is very weak and when turned off, it will slowly stop instead of the immediate stop it had before. Aerator is clean.

I am inclined to just replace the unit - anyone have a less expensive solution?

I would disconnect the water lines from the faucet to see if there is established flow to this point, might just be debri in the isolation valves under the sink.
