    Technically, since hot air rises, that makes it less dense, so in that case I would have to assume throwing it in the cold would make it more resistive and result in a shorter distance. Additionally, other factors such as the padded clothing, colder and harder to move appendages, and poorer traction would cause the thrower great difficulty in the cold.

    I'd like to know if you've considered throwing a snowball where there's snow on the ground - would the cold air affect the distance at all?
