In brief: Not necessarily
Long periods of hot dry weather lead to high ambient ozone levels.
Ozone is a respiratory irritant and can precipitate asthma symptoms in susceptible individuals. Urban areas with hot dry weather also have higher levels of respiratory irritants like sulfur dioxide and diesel exhaust particles.
