Cold weather can severely slug your battery.. check the date on it and see if its older than 3 years.. if it is then thats probably the issue

Good advise. Probably a weak battery. Good enough to run lights and stuff but not enough capacity to crank over the engine. Time to replace it.

Time for a new battery. You can also add a block heater and a battery heater if you have problems in the future.
