Another factor is that there is less rainfall in the summertime to flush out the oxides of sulfur and nitrogen from the air.

What is air conditioning? I have never had a house with even one room air conditioned. Granted, here in the Pa Highlands, we really don't need it, but I and my family lived through 2 summers in southern W. Va. in the Kanawha Valley with 90 degree temperatures, and we survived just fine.
