the body's metabolism slows down with temperature decrease

hypothermia is when your heart rate slows down dangerously because of the cold. So the body naturally shivers to increase motility to speed up heart rate.

when you get colder, then your body gets colder. When your body gets colder, you slow down. When you slow down, as does your heart. So cold weather decreases...as does your heart rate.
