That is actually very common - especially in the older cars.  Running 
poorly when it's wet or very humid.  There is a solution.  Undo *all* 
the electrical connections (one at a time) in the engine compartment (at 
least), clean them, and do them back up using some silicone dielectric 
grease (or your favorite contact enhancer) to keep them clean and sealed.

It is sometimes just due to crappy ignition wires/cap/rotor arcing, so 
examine them first.
