Does weather affect cats?

I have a 1 year old male and the weather in Northern Michigan has been something of a roller coaster lately. Over night we got over a foot last night. But between our storms it's been moderate, still chilly but warm enough to melt snow. Since this storm started, my cat has slept. He slept literally all day... show more I have a 1 year old male and the weather in Northern Michigan has been something of a roller coaster lately. Over night we got over a foot last night.

Since this storm started, my cat has slept. He slept literally all day today and got up a few times to move sleep spots, eat, and drink. While it's not snowing I put him outside to potty but he won't stay awake for me. He won't play at all even with catnip. Just sleeps. Im trying to keep him awake so he isnt up all night meowing. Could the weather make him all lazy and stuff?
