I do think your body can get chilled and not be as effective at fighting off a virus. I think we always have viruses we're fighting off, but if our immune system is a little off, that's when we catch whatever it is. I do think it's related, not that the weather, your wet hair or whatever *gives* you the cold, but I think being chilled makes your immune system just a bit weaker.
I think it's too much of a coincidence that so many people will be out in the cold or catch a chill and then get sick the next day. I had a fan on me last night while I slept and I remember being cold and not having enough blankets to be all that warm. I woke up with a head cold.
Just my opinion, but it is interesting!
