Is Spherical Powder More Sensitive to Hot Climates than Other Powders?

Hi Guys,
I've recently started reloading and because I have a Hornady AP press I've settlled on ball powder because its easy to measure. With Varget and IMR I was getting too much variance on my powder measure.

A few days ago, while at the range, one of the guys mentioned that he tried ball powder in the 80s but gave up on because the Houston sun would cause "flashing" if bullets were left exposed to the sun. A lot of things have changed in the past 30 years.

The question is this: Is spherical powder more sensitive to hot climate then other powders?

Thanks for your advice.
