Plate in foot, cold weather making it hurt?

I had a severely broken foot last year, (broke three metatarsals and three toes!) it's since healed fully, but I still have a metal plate and four screws keeping it all together, and the cold weather makes the plate cold, therefore causing my foot to swell and throb. Is there anything I can do, aside from wearing thick socks, to alleviate the pain?
