I bet moisture is getting on your distributer cap when it is damp outside and thats why your having problems starting it only in damp weather.

Jtolfree he said he has spark. Only thing left is fuel. Next time it decides to start hard spray something extremely flamable into the throttle body. Ether, brake cleaner, Carb cleaner will all do.
