You could have moisture in any number of electrical connections, but more than likely an ignition lead. You could also have a loose lead. I would start at the starter and move back to the battery and then the ignition. Check your fuses while you are at it to be safe.

Do you smell any fuel smell while cranking it? Does the vehicle start then die at all?
