If the temperature outside is 40 degrees or warmer, many fireplaces will struggle with drafting correctly. Furthermore, if the temperature falls below 40 degrees but it has only been that way for a few hours, your fireplace may not draft well ( your house can take up to 24 hours to become balanced to outside fluctuations). Since the fireplace works like a tornado, when a warm front meets a cold front, the temperature outside can have a significant impact on how well your fireplace drafts/draw. If you are having and issue with drafting, there are many variables that can cause smoking issues, but one basic point to consider is the temperature outside.
