There are a lot of factors here.

One thing that undoubtedly contributes is that the difference between sleeping outside in January in Florida vs, say, Minnesota is that in Florida you might occasionally find it unpleasantly chilly but in Minnesota, "unpleasantly chilly" would be a welcome respite from the bitter freezing cold. This could have an impact in the form of people who are already homeless migrating to somewhere warmer in the winter.
