Thanks for writing your query to us.

Freckles are clusters of concentrated melanin which are often visible in fair skin people. It is genetic in origin. Formation of freckles is triggered by sunlight. So it is not related to weather . It is basically the exposure to sunlight that means exposure to UV B light that activates the melanocytes to increase melanin production which makes freckles darker & make them more visible.
Take care.
