However, Judaism did eventually branch out into parts of the world more subject to wintry temperatures, and we do see some legends surrounding the spirits of cold  in later midrash: specifically, the idea that God left the northern corner of the world unfinished with the proclamation that anyone else who could finish it could declare themselves a true god. Naturally, no one ever finished it, and now "demons, winds, earthquakes, and evil spirits dwell" there.

It's interesting how traditions adapt to reflect new environments. Also that's a fascinating bit of mythology. I now want to do a story about somebody (or some entity) attempting to renovate the north corner of the world.
