In a way, yes. Static electricity is best developed in a dry environment. If the air temperature is low there is less water vapour present, if the air is warm there is more water vapour present. Warm air has a higher moisture content than cold air.

You can try this at home, get a felt cloth and a perspex rod and try rubbing them at varying temperatures (put them both in the fridge for 10 minutes). You'll find you get a bigger jolt when they are colder than when they are warm.

When I am at a playground and I sit in the Half Egg that spins around during a hot day, I find alot of static is around me, and hardly none at all on a cold day. The weather does do something to help generate static.
