Probably a short or loose connection between battery and starter motor, or on either end of cables. Id look there before swapping out starter.On cold days you might put a heater under car for a few hours before using it,do this carefully as to avoid a car fire, or look into a block heater for your engine.

Have the battery tested at the local auto parts dealer. you may have a dead cell. the radio and lights will work fine because they do not require that much voltage. The colder it is the harder it is on the battery and the more juice the process will require. At the same time the battery will have less to offer the colder it gets. If one of the cells is dead you are not going to have enough power to turn that frozen engine over.

Check eng light came on eng stalled it was 98 degrees outside

You'll have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem.
Is the check engine light on before the engine dies ?
It can run in 125 degree temp so there is a problem that may have been made worse by the 98 degree weather.
My first guess would be the idle control motor or valve if it has one.

Ethanol fuel in hot weather will vapour lock easier than the old non-ethanol fuels.
Maybe that was all it was.
I get the calls ........usually from shopping centers on very hot days on cranking but no start cars.....and it is 80% just a vapourized fuel problem. TOO HOT FOR THE FUEL UNDER THE HOOD.
The cars start the next morning....or late in the evening.
