Default Affect of weather/climate on MPG's

Just curious to know if anyone of you have logged, even mentally, when you achieve your best MPG's and what the environment has been.

Of course, winter fuel could be a factor, but recently I have noticed that on the same winter fuel from the same station, I get better MPG on warmer (highs in the 50's & 60's) than on cold days. I also admit that I may "puff" my car for about 10 min on cold days.

Also, what about climate? Dry vs humid; high altitude vs low; etc...
