In brief: By definition, no

Chronic bronchitis is, by definition, not seasonal.
It is defined as a cough that is productive of mucus every day for 3 months in a row. It is often considered a variant of emphysema/copd, which is almost invariably caused by smoking tobacco.

In brief: No...

Chronic bronchitis is a form of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or copd.
It is usually caused by smoking and it is chronic, not seasonal. There is no cure and treatment is aimed at controlling symptoms. You can have seasonal worsening of symptoms due to allergic bronchospasm but the disease itself is not seasonal.
