Relative humidity, barometric pressure, temperature and precipitation can trigger headache for many migraineurs. Lisa Mannix, MD, Headache Associates, West Chester, Ohio believes the change in weather pattern, not the distinct weather itself is the triggering factor.
Having a genetic susceptibility to migraine may also be a factor for weather sensitivity. Dr. Mannix notes “That inherited sensitive nervous system is likely responding to changes in weather.”
While we can’t control mother nature, eating a healthy diet, having good sleep habits, exercising regularly, and managing stress can help to minimize headache.  Dr.Mannix also recommends talking to your healthcare provider about medication to reduce headache frequency…..NHF Headlines Number 176
