    I'm sure I've heard it, but can't find a reliable reference.

    So, the question is about whether it is Ok to say something like:
    "Isn't it a bit cold in the year for long walks outside?" - meaning that it's a part of the year that is known for its cold weather, cold season.

    I wouldn't include "in the year" in that sentence.

    You could say "This is a/the cold time of year" to mean that this period is usually cold.
