Can you catch a cold from cold weather?

No, but the cold can weaken your immunity, as can the lack of sunlight. The reason people tend to get sick more in cold weather is that we stay indoors more in close quarters breathing germy air and touching germy surfaces.

No. A cold is a virus passed on from one person to another. BUT if you already have a cold, then cold weather weather will not help you feel better.
