Couple of things to check. Loose/corroded battery terminals, either positive or negative. Dead battery. Loose cable at the starter. Those would be the main items to check.

Sounds like a weak battery or loose cables. Try charging the battery or take the battery to a car parts shop to have them test it.

First of all, how old is your battery? It might be time to get a new one. If you go to Auto zone or Advance Auto, they'll check it for you. I'd get one now before the cold weather sets in and you don't want to deal with it then.
If you have a road hazard policy with your dealer or with your auto insurance policy, call them and get a hot shot to start the car.
