On days when the weather is rainy, stormy, or thickly overcast (i.e. nasty), I notice that it feels substantially cooler in my home than it does when there's sunny, pleasant weather outside.  There's a thermostat keeping the house the same temperature (68˚F), so I suspect it's more about something going on in me than in the actual temperature.

My best guess is that it has something to do with nitric oxide, but I don't know beyond that.  Does anyone have any idea about how or why this happens?

TJ I know what you mean.  Today it's nasty, and I'm hot!  Now the temps have dropped from the 70 to 50 and are slowly working their way up again.  What I have notice is my blood pressure has risen. (not to worry it's up to 114/9? and is usually in the 90)  I'm assuming this is what is making me hotter than usual. As you say, my house is set at 72. Having said all that often I'm like you and feel cold when the weather first drops. Once I get cold like that a hot shower is about all that will warm me up.  Hope you get warmer soon.

Everything feels colder when it's damp outside (earmuffs)

I know what you mean! It feels downright chilly in my house right now, yet it's actually warmer than it's been on other days when it's clear and cool outside. But that may have as much to do with me feeling sick today as it does with the weather. I often feel cold when I'm sick (except when I'm feeling too hot- it's harder for me to be comfortable when I don't feel well.)

I guess I should pay more attention to my arginine supplementation to see if it's connected.

I know exactly what you mean.  It was rainy and nasty earlier in the week and the house just felt cold even though the thermostat was at the same level - 68.  I also get cold when I'm tired.

That used to always happen to me, but I discovered that it was just my mind playing tricks on me   If I make a conscious effort to not let the "drear" outside affect me, I don't get cold

If it is 60 outside, sunny and not windy I feel comfortable.  But my house is set to 70 and if it is cold, dark & rainy outside, I feel chilly inside.

well, I think its that chill air does come in under doors and the floors are colder while the general temp reports the same.
I enjoy unloading the dishwasher of fresh dishes when I'm cold...mmm, they're so warm!
Or baking...that'll warm you up.

I wonder if it is the "dampness" that makes some of us feel colder? It makes me colder than dry cold.  Just back from visiting family in England where it was quite mild but on those wet damp days, it gets to me, feel quite chilled regardless of actual temp. outside.

Excellent point, I hadn't thought about that!

That's another good point.  I think at a certain range of temperatures, the humidity doesn't affect our perception of the temperature, but at temps below that range, more humidity makes it feel colder than it really is, and at temps above that range, it makes it feel hotter.

So between cold floors and dampness (and add wacky NO regulation for us Bs and ABs), it's no wonder.

I like the attitude brinyskysail and I need to learn to do that more too!!!!  But I agree.  It was overcast this morning and I was a little more achey than the previous clear days.  But nothing terrible thank GOD!!!!

It's in the Nomad section in the GTD book.  Nitric oxide.   Regulates blood pressure and things like that.  He says Nomads clear them too fast, or have imbalances.  Too  much in one area and not enough in another.  He says raisins help regulate it.  Which I'm craving right now but my daughter has stuck her dirty hands in the jar we have and left the lid open too much for me to be comfortable eating them.  Sometimes we need a jar for me and a jar for the kids.  I know, it's anal, but my mind isn't comfortable with those little germs.  I see them scratching all kinds of places, you know?

Damp and cold always feels more miserable than dry and cold.  Same thing with heat.  Humidity is what does it.  Moisture "carries" the temperature more efficiently than dry air.  That's why ice AND water is added to a wine bucket for chilling a bottle.  Moisture will make the bottle chill more quickly.  I can't tell you how that works, only that it does.  I imagine our bodies are affected in the same way.

I can.   Thank you chemistry class!

All substances have a specific heat, or heat capacity, which is the amount of energy transfer required to change the temperature of that substance by a certain amount.

Specific Heat

In the list, notice how much more energy (in joules) it take to change the temperature of 1 gram of water by 1 degree Celcius, compared to the other substances in the list.  In other words, water can absorb a lot of heat!

Here's another list: Heat Capacities.  The only substances in the list with a higher heat capacity than liquid water are liquid ammonia, liquid lithium, and gaseous hydrogen and helium.
