Battery may have an internal short ... with the onset of cold weather ... cold weather separates the weak from the strong


There could be short in the electrical system or something could be staying on such as a light. To check for short remove positive battery terminal slightly drag terminal over the battery post if you get a ark or spark there is a short in the electrical system.
