Wait till it gets dark, no street lights, raise the hood and start it up, watch for stray sparks from the ignition wires, if you don't see any then get a spray bottle of water and spry the wires and see if you then see sparks, if you do then it is time to replace the plug wires.

Like the first two said bad wires OR check to make sure you are not getting water under your dist. cap. Check cap for condensation after a rain.
