R0 can definitely depend on the weather, or anything for that matter. There's a whole body of research based on clear and simple models, showing that heterogeneities in the system can lead to epidemic outbursts or endemic states, even if the disease seemingly died off (sometimes one hotpot is enough). It's maths, so it happens regardless of the seasons/weather. The Great Britain scientists seem to be too great for such basic models, though. Not to mention the complete disregard of the economic consequences of their advice - government taking the side of big corpos again?
