1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes, it could

Heart rate is one of the compensatory mechanisms used to maintain the conditions inside your body on an even keel regardless of the weather conditions outside.
So, yes indeed your heart rate may increase when you are exposed to significantly cold or hot weather.
