Question or statement?

Suppose there is very cold weather of zero temperature. Someone might say "How cold is that" (usually with uptalk inflection). I think they mean "How cold that is". Really it sounds like a question, but is meant as a statement. The style bothers me. Where did this style come from? Is it incorrect?
