If only a few leaves are drying out, it's probably weather related. If all the leaves on an entire vine are wilting and drying up, squash vine borers might be at work. Check the vines for holes and the soil for sawdust like matter on the soil surface. Sometimes you can find and remove the squash vine borers and sometimes the damage is so severe that the vine will die in a few days. Hope the problem is weather related!
