The culprit that makes the Arthritis go worst in the summer are the Anti-inflammatory drugs [NSADIs] which make the skin extra sensitive and more prone to burns and rashes. And the intense heat and humidity may result in acute exacerbation for the patients with asthma.

The main triggers for an Asthma attack are Dust, Pollen & Mold, Polluted Air, Humidity, and Smoking. Clearly, they all relate to the everyday lifestyle.
