) Our Ford Fungus did the same on a very hot day.
A squirt of silicone grease on the window guides should cure it. It has certainly stopped ours from squeaking.
It should be something you do regularly really, but it is not until you get the squeak that you realise that you forgot to spray the seals!
I'm really pleased that I found this thread. My pass door wiindow started squeeking a few weeks back but I hadn't made the connection with ambient temperature. Fortunately I had in the garage some 'general purpose motor lubricant' that included 'window guides' as one of its functions; can't remember why I had this now, it was left in a previous car after a service but I don't recall what that problem was.
