In brief: No

Not usually, but it depends on what is causing the tears.
Eye allergies may or may not be seasonal (depends what junior's allergic to); but other causes of increased tearing like blocked ducts, vision problems, eye irritation, or glaucoma have nothing to do with seasons.

In brief: No

No, but changes in your environment, cold, wind, dust , pollen can increase your tearing.
The seasons don't cause you to tear differently, but the things you are exposed to in different seasons may change your tearing patterns.

In brief: Yes

It can be if it is related to allergies or the cold, dry air of wintertime.
However, many newborns have tearing due to a narrow tear duct, a condition known as dacryostenosis.
