This is not an uncommon scenario on various brands when temps change etc.. Most likely you have a bad horn switch and as tems change,, the contatc become closer and stes horn off. cant rul out drivers side airbag which makes this a little tricky to diagnose but maybe on cold evening, hist the horn and see if it feels real sensitive on one side or the other. i suspect bad horns switch.You can clisk HERE for switch info and HERE for airbag info
