Butane lighters are fine for warm weather. IIRC, butane liquefies at 45 F. The liquid butane in the lighter won't vaporize so it can ignite if it gets down to that temperature. If you get an unseasonal cold spell, keep the lighter in your clothing near your body so the butane stays warmer.

Zippo type lighters that use lighter fluid (naphtha) will work at lower temperatures than butane lighters, as will matches.
