Weather conditions play a great deal in bass location:

Stable Weather Conditions:

During stable weather, bass go through a routine of feeding and resting that is often very  predictable. They will feed heavily just before a strong cold front moves in. But once the front arrives they eat very little. An extended warm front in the spring or winter will usually cause the bass to eat more heartily, while an extended warm front in the summer will make the bass sluggish and difficult to catch.

Windy Weather Conditions

Wind can either improve or ruin fishing. A steady wind will concentrate minute organisms near shore and will attract the bass.

A warm steady wind from one direction will warm the waters in the spring in certain areas, and the bass will concentrate in this warmer water. It also creates waves that wash on shore, which then washes soil and debris into the water, creating a band of muddy water. The bass will stay in this mud line and then dart out into the clear water for food. But a strong wind will create too much turbulence in the water and the bass will then be pushed into deeper water. On shallow lakes a heavy wind can make the lake so murky that it will slow down fishing for several days until the water clears again.

Rainy Weather Conditions

Rainy weather usually improves fishing. The overcast skies reduce light penetration, so the bass are more likely to be in shallower water. But during and after a heavy rain the fish may stop biting entirely.
