In brief: Good question
Barometric pressure changes and cold temperatures can make people with various types of arthritis feel worse.
Dressing warmly and taking medication only helps a little as the weather will be what it will be. People live where they live due to family, jobs, friends, and many other factors. Only a few move purely for their arthritis symptoms.
