I've heard thunder during the winter here. It happens, just not as frequently. The saying here goes that if you have thunder during the winter, you can expect snow within 10 days. Not sure how true that is but that is what they told me this year.

Thunder is the result of a lightning strike. There are multiple theories what causes lightning. One theory regarding cold weather is there would be plenty of ice particles within clouds. This would separate negative and positive charges within or between clouds.
