Hi Ken,
Interestingly enough, we live just east of the Rocky Mountains and during the winter we get what are called "Chinooks" which is a warm air mass coming in over our mountains, with extraordinarily high winds. Our temp will increase 20 - 30 in a matter of hours - we're talking -20 to +10. There are lots of folks here who immediately complain of "Chinook Headaches", not cluster sufferers necessarily. For some reason, a chinook does not affect Mike or cause an attack even when he is in cycle.
However, the gradual season change and change in daylight hours has more of an effect on him and will often spawn a cycle.
Now, Bobbie P. lives just an hour or so north of me so she would experience Chinooks too, so it will be interesting to see if she is affected by them.
Hope this helps...
Margi
