why does my gear shift sometimes lock in park? It won't go into any other gear on 2006 Jeep Liberty

the temperature outside has dropped about 20 degrees. I live in Miami and it usually does drop quickly. Two times I tried to drive and couldn't get the shifter to go into any gear other than Park. The brake light went on for about 30 minutes but hasn't gone on again. Thank you for your help. I greatly appreciate it.
