Check battery cables and ground connection at the engine and frame first, but if you don't find anything, have the starter current draw checked. If it pulls too much current, replace it before it refuses to start the car in cold weather.

Check the starter motor brushes. They may be worn and need replacing. No need to replace the entire starter motor AFAIK.
