Default Stiff, sore hips when squatting

Recently my hips have been unusually stiff and sore when squatting - I normally do plenty of warmup and mobility drills before I lift, but it feels like they're taking longer to warmup than usual, and squatting below parallel is quite uncomfortable.

I try to do mobility regularly anyway, and lots of soft tissue work with a foam roller and tennis ball etc. Does anybody else experience this/know ways that I can free up some movement in the hips? The discomfort means I'm reticient when it comes to dropping into a full squat, which doesn't make catching snatches or cleans any easier.

Thanks
