It's the change in air pressure as weather systems move in and out. If you're in nice weather(high pressure), body equilibrates and then when bad weather moves in (low pressure), your body is still at higher pressure setting and microscopically expands, which causes joint pain. It's the inner expansion that hurts, not contraction when going from crappy weather to nice. Recent break acts as a joint re pressure response. May take years to go away. I had a skiing rib that bothered me for several years. Broke collar bone 3x as a kid, but no pain as adult. Give it a few years. Also, gives you the benefit of irritating family and co-workers by constantly saying "Feels like rain(snow)", and usually being right.
If it was just strain (bike bag) you would probably feel it riding.
