So I came across this sentence寒くなってきました. I learned the grammar verb-te + ikimasu/kimasu which means doing something and going back or the other. I searched up the grammar and it also means becoming/start to. 寒くなって already means becoming cold. What does kimashita mean in the sentence above?

I hope to further understand the grammar and thanks in advance.


I think the best English interpretation is "It has started to get cold."

The state of becoming cold has come.
