Does cold weather exposure lead to miscarriage?

Hi! Can a pregnant woman (22 weeks) suffer a miscarriage (a premature amniotic sac rupture) due to inappropriate protection during a winter season ? Example: being dressed with a short skirt, bare legs and feet , shoes instead boots, in a temperature of 15F or below, exposed at least 30 min. 2 times per week. Thank you.

thank you for query
i think cold weather does not lead to miscarriage.
the possible cause of abortion are-
Most miscarriages are caused by chromosome problems that make it impossible for the baby to develop. Usually, these problems are unrelated to the mother or father's genes.
Other possible causes for miscarriage include:
•     Drug and alcohol abuse
•     Exposure to environmental toxins
•     Hormone problems
•     Infection
•     Obesity
•     Physical problems with the mother's reproductive organs
•     Problem with the body's immune response
•     Serious body-wide ( systemic) diseases in the mother (such as uncontrolled diabetes)
•     Smoking
It is estimated that up to half of all fertilized eggs die and are lost (aborted) spontaneously, usually before the woman knows she is pregnant. Among those women who know they are pregnant, the miscarriage rate is about 15-20%. Most miscarriages occur during the first 7 weeks of pregnancy. The rate of miscarriage drops after the baby's heart beat is detected.
The risk for miscarriage is higher in women:
•     Older age, with increases beginning by 30, becoming greater between 35 and 40, and highest after 40
•     Who have had previous miscarriages
