    Yes, but insignificantly.  The freezing point of water increases with a decrease in air pressure, but only by one-hundreth of a degree for every atmosphere of pressure decrease.  For example, compared to the freezing point of water at sea level, the freezing point of water 500 miles up is only 0.01 degree higher.
