Down to the tilt of the earth (can't do much about that) + the effects of global warming. I believe the global warming effect ironically can cause colder northern hemisphere winters.
Global warming has warmed our winters up though, as it wasn't that many years ago and having -35 C temps in Late December thru February wasn't all that uncommon. If you had a vehicle that sat outside you had to plug in a radiator style heater, or a heater that sat inside the oil pan, if you expected it to start in the mornings.
