The moisture in the air, not the temp, was causing your sparks to be
shorter. Moist
air is more conductive than dry air and therefore sparks dissipate faster in
a moist,
conductive environment.

I've seen tapes of Robert Stephens on very cold (yet dry) Canadian winters
running
his coils with tremendous results.
