Researchers have found a possible link between migraines and the weather.

Doctors at Taipei Children's Hospital in Taiwan asked 66 people with a history of migraine headaches to keep a diary of their symptoms for one year.

Researchers found that temperature changes triggered about one fifth of all migraines and were especially linked to mild ones.

The connection was more obvious on cold days than warm ones. The findings are being presented at a medical conference in Los Angeles.
