Yes, it would be interesting to see if someone has plotted all of these weather-related factors.
We also know that very humid air causes the ball to fly further–lighter water molecules displace diatomic molecules of oxygen–and that high pressure should depress home runs slightly also.
Combine the three factors: heat, humidity and high pressure vs. low pressure.
Surely, someone has looked into this.

My understanding of humidity was that humid, heavy air hinders the ball rising in the first place, thereby holds down distance (and so home runs).
