If it cranks but does not start, you could try starting fluid sprayed into the intake to boost fuel supply.

Starting in damp weather 1993 240 wagon, auto/od, 235k miles


perhaps you need a new cap and roter a new spark plug wire set. they don;t like moisture. also check to see if you have any broken or leaking vacuum hoses. the worse case senerio would be that your head gasket is leaking--at cold temps a little antifreeze will enter until everything warms up and it seals shut due to metal expanding. but since you say it's cold weather only--this probably wou;dn't be the case. good luck.
