Hot weather can make your blood pressure drop -- I found that out when I moved to Florida and was suddenly very weak.  I was already taking bp meds and I was tottering around like a little old lady until I adjusted to the climate.  I was told not to walk in the hot weather.  Also hot showers can dialate your blood vessels and make you woozy, maybe because your bp drops.  Hope this is some help.
