In brief: Increased activity..

In fact, many patients have increased joint pains in the winter when the weather turns cold.
Changes in barometric pressure, such as cold and rain, can increase joint pain. For you, could it be that your area has rainy summers, or could it be that you are more active in the summer?

Great response. It's likely that you are more active on the summer.
