Could this be migraines?

Is what I am experiencing today a migraine? I have never had this before.
This morning when I stepped out the door, I noticed my brain hurt, localized behind my right eye. At first I thought it was a pinched nerve in my neck. So I stood up real straight and moved my arms around. That didn't work. So I held my tongue up against the roof of my mouth, as if I had a slurpee brain freeze. That also didn't work. I thought perhaps I slept funny, and needed to get the blood flowing to wash whatever it was away. So I went for a short, light jog. That sharpened the pain significantly. I had to stop and cover my eye with my hand because it hurt so bad. I was grimacing. I came home and put on dark sunglasses. I have been wearing them all day.
My guess right now is that the weather is causing this. I know some people get migraines when it's hot. But that doesn't make sense because it's not even that hot today. It's like 70, and this morning it was approximately 60.
It has been getting better throughout the day. It's not that bad right now. I'm pretty confident it will go away tomorrow morning. I didn't drink any alcohol or anything last night.
Is this what migraines are? I am 27 and have never had this before.
