It is possible water may have got in under the edge or seal and froze creating stress in the glass and when it warmed up eventually cracked. Toughened glass has little or no give and will eventually shater with increasing stress. I seen the front screen of a Mini blow outwards one winter when the driver slammed the door shut.
