I'm new to Audis, and I don't pretend to have a ton of
mechanical knowledge.  But to me, this seems like the hallmark
of worn ignition system parts.  Ignition wires that have
worn insulation, or breaks that allow moisture to penetrate,
tend to bleed off high voltage when the surrounding air is
damp.  I'd give the ignition wires a real close look.
