weather changes & intonation question


Sometimes on a floating tremolo guitar weather changes like going from hot to cold or humid to dry, the strings will go sharp or flat. This can be adjuted by tightening or loosening the tremolo claw.
But my question is, wont this affect the intonation?. Other option is to unlock the nut-clamps and tune from the headstock, even though its more tedious. Which of the two options
will alter the original position of the bridge the least amount?.

Re: weather changes & intonation question

Adjusting from the back of the guitar is the best, and it doesn't take much. Temperature change is also one of the reasons that I never use the back cover on my guitars. More airflow equates to quicker acclimation.
