Wouldn't think so: But heat can be a vasodilator which can cause swelling.

Yes: You didn't state what you were drinking. The sun can dehydrate you. If you are drinking water this should somewhat counteract the dehydrating effect of the sun. However, if you were consuming alcohol while in the sun this can also be dehydrating.
