Does weather affect light bulbs?

This may seem like a silly question in relation to exterior lighting but it's one that I pondered recently because it seems that the light bulbs placed outside on our front and our back porch are needing to be replaced more often now than in the summer. It has not been dramatically colder as most winters are here in Ohio with the exception of the current cold spell. Surprisingly when I did some research to find the answer to this question, it was not readily discovered. There were some that expressed the belief that in colder weather the temperature difference in a traditional light bulb made them not last as long, but nothing I could really point to that answered my question.
