Your body has little bits of air and fluid all over, especially around joints.

It reacts to air pressure outside your body, but slowly. If weather systems change quickly, the sudden change means the little bits of air or fluid inside your body are suddenly out of whack with surrounding environment and are either pushing extra hard, or are being pushed on extra hard. If you’ve ever driven up/down mountains or flown on a plane you’ve probably felt this in your ears as your ears pop. Some people also feel it in their knees or other parts of the body.

Either way, your nerves relay the change to the brain as pressure or pain until the little air/fluid pockets re-adjust to the new air pressure outside your body.
