What would cause a 99 contour to not start in cold weather 36 - 45 degrees it will turn over but not start Starts fine in warm weather?

You need all the cranking amps your battery can supply in cold weather. Check your battery connections, take them off and clean them and reinstall and tighten. You can use dilectric grease to keep them from corroding. Once you have them reinstalled, and TIGHT, then try to crank it over in cold weather. If it still won't crank then your battery has a weak cell and is probably on it's way out. Make sure you have a fully charged battery when you are trying to start it. Warm weather does not take as many crankign amps from your battery so that is why it is fine then and not in cold weather Also check your automatic choke or throttle body position, the flap should be almost closed when starting in cold weather, as a test disconnect the air intake tube from the throttle body and cover the opening with your hand while someone turns the engine over, if it fires right up then that is the problem, never use the gas pedal when starting cold it defeats the purpose, you need to starve the engine for air when starting in cold weather.
