In brief: No

Weather does not make a difference for pulmonary fibrosis.
Altitude does. In pulmonary fibrosis it is harder for oxygen to cross into the bloodstream. Higher altitudes have lower oxygen pressure compounding the problem. Ultimately, living at lower altitudes does not affect survival or the course of the disease.
