Why does cold weather cause runny noses?
January 24, 2020 6:32PM
A couple different cold-weather factors contribute to there being just too much fluid for the nose to hold (gross, I know, but true).
First, because winter air tends to be very dry, the nose has to produce a lot of extra fluid to humidify it properly on its way to the lungs. Sometimes it makes so much that it runs right out the end of the nose.
What’s more, when that warm, moisturized air gets breathed back out into cold, dry surroundings, it condenses on the cold tip of the nose, adding even more fluid.

Cold weather is a frequent cause of runny noses. The chillier weather can make your nose dry, causing it to work harder to make sure air entering your lungs is warm and humid. The cold weather can dry out your mucous membranes and cause your nose to run.

When we breathe in, our noses warm the air and add moisture to it as it travels down into our lungs. Cold, dry air irritates your nasal lining, and as a result, your nasal glands produce excess mucus to keep the lining moist. ... A runny nose is one of the most typical symptoms of the common cold.

The mucus membrane that lines the nose cavity produces fluid and mucus. This fluid not only helps keep off allergens, pollens from entering into our system but it also helps warm up and humidify the air we breathe in during respiration for our lungs. Our lung tissue are very sensitive, so during winter the air is dry and cold so the membrane increases the fluid production to cope with this situation.
