    I suppose it causes the joints to become more inflammed.

    I think the pressure changes in weather cause the joints prone to arthritis to become inflamed. I believe the swelling is fluid drawn into the joint due to the inflammation.

    The suspect most often singled out by arthritis sufferers and  pressure, which is the pressure exerted by the air around us. A drop in pressure often precedes a storm, and the  decrease in the air pressure can cause the tissues around the joints to swell, causing arthritic pain. Proponents of the idea use a balloon in a barometric chamber as a simulator. If the pressure outside drops, the air in the balloon expands. If the same happened in the area around an arthritic joint, the expansion or swelling could irritate the nerves, causing pain.
