Yes, that is what I sometimes do:

Check cold. Drive to the local air supply. Check again. I allow for the heated up difference by putting in additional air.

For an example, I want the tire to be at 32PSI:

Cold: 27

After 1 mile: 29

At the air source: 34

Or, you can over fill them the night before and bleed off excess the next morning. Often I have been surprised when doing this in that they are not all that "over-filled"

Hopefully this explains it.
