Roger in Mexico asked:
I tend to get awful headaches that fall under the migraine classification but I notice that they're weather related. Why is it that weather should have these effects?
I don't know whether there is a direct relationship between pressure and headaches. If anyone listening knows anything about a link between migraines and weather, I'd be very interested to hear about it. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. One thing that does occur to me is that if you have high pressure, then usually that's associated with a warm day. When people get very hot, they get dehydrated and a fierce headache. That could be possible.
