does pt wood warp less in cooler weather

I am going to build a pressure treated wood fail fence w/ 4" x 6" posts and 5/4" x 6" rails. I will wait about six months to dry out before staining. If I wait until late fall when temp cools off considerably (ga here) will the wood tend to warp/bow/twist any less?? Thanks

Yes, if wood dries too quickly it shrinks more at the surface than the interior making it warp more.
