I think the greeting is jocously/jestfully, humorous. The underlying tone is :" You are such a big man. Generally you wouldn't honor my house with your presence. But now you have humbled yourself... A change of policy, eh?"
Actually, one doesn't need to see "which way the wind is blowing" before they visit their friends. But this expression is joyfully used among friends to creat a friendly atmosphere when they meet each other after a long period of time.
