Well when I put the car into acce, to turn the radio on and the clock, the clock is really dim and the radio wont come on. Is this cause of the very low temps outside, cant start the car up yet since I cant get it out of the garage till tonight, will starting the car up fix it?

Update: The Lights are very dim, my brights are as bright as my parking lights on a normal day. Can hardly see the parking lights now.

you need a new battery. Try to go for one with the higher cold cranking amps for the cold winter months. Does the car turn over and start fine? How are the lights once its running?
