I have a Chevy Cobalt 2008. I drove the car yesterday before the freezing cold and during the snow. This morning the key will not turn in the ignition but the lights come on. The sun is up but still cannot turn key. The steering wheel is not locked and the car is in park completely.

Three things I can think of:
In addition to Paulster2's suggestions, try jiggling the shifter (shaft and button). Also, there is a recall for the ignition lock cylinder on your vehicle that has been all over the news. The fix for that may solve your problem. Check your battery (it's in the trunk), too. The interior lights coming on don't mean it's 100%. There is a button in a compartment on the column behind a rubber cover. It's for releasing a key from the ignition, but you might give it a shot.
