In brief: Probably not
This answer may generate controversy.
Many of my patients absolutely swear that they can predict the weather based on their joint symptoms, and there may be something to it. The explanation usually revolves around changes in barometric pressure. However, in the limited scientific studies available patients couldn't predict the weather based on their joint symptoms.
