Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

Most likely and the most common cause is the cold affects the battery so the engine turns over due to the cold weather. So when this happens the engine could flood much easier. Try this if you can. Try to start the engine again, but step on the accelerator pedal about 1/4 of the way and see if it will start.

Let me know what happens.
