Sciatica: This is not unusual and I have seen it in many patients. Its probably related to changes in barometirc pressure.

Sciatica?: Maybe arthritic pain can get worse with weather changes, we have some anecdotal evidence of that. However sciatica pain does not have the same anecdotal evidence. I would suggest seeing your doctor for more evaluation.
