There is a marked difference between a winter rocket launch and a summer rocket launch.
Depending on the details of the location spaceport, a winter launch has thicker, more dense atmosphere to offer more resistance to a rocket in flight.
On the other hand, a summer launch is more ideal as the barometric pressure is less, air density is less, and hot rising air currents assist the rocket traversing through the air. Another effect exists, sometimes coined
as "no air."

The "no air" effect offers less resistance to accelerating rockets through the atmosphere. At the same time, intense atmospheric heat closer to the ground can result in less atmospheric density, resulting in the rocket's increasing "balloon" effect.
Summer rockets, given the same rocket and engine specs, may travel higher and farther when compared to winter rockets. However, winter rockets may experience different results with engine cumbustion rates and should be studied.
