    Research is not conclusive, but scientists think you feel knee pain when the weather changes because of shifts in temperature or barometric pressure.  Colder temperatures cause muscles, tendons, and ligaments to tighten, which can lead to stiffness in the joint.  A rise in barometric pressure can have a similar effect, causing increased pressure within the joint.
