It isn't posible to generalize. There are more than 170 diseases that fall under the category of arthritis. There are two conditions that come along with some kinds of arthritis that are made worse by a dry climate. These are scleroderma and Sjogren's Syndrome. If you are asking about a specific kind of arthrtis I could tell you. For example, with rheumatoid arthritis the climate doesn't make any difference since it is an auto-immune arthritic disease. For osteoarthritis warmer and drier does help.
