Some key points from WebMD “How the Weather Affects Our Moods”:

  • Temperature, wind, and sunlight were found to have an effect on negative mood. Sunlight seemed to play a role on how tired people said they were.
  • Wind had more of a negative effect on mood in spring and summer than in fall and winter.
  • Sunlight had a mitigating effect on whether people reported they were tired on days when it rained.
  • People were so varied in how they responded that researchers write that a mood-weather link may still exist for individuals.
  • When days become shorter, some people’s moods mirrored that, while others actually felt more positive feelings.
