Default Starting a batch of wine when it is raining

I heard that it is not good to rack your wine when it is raining or low pressure
Is it ok to start a new batch of wine when it is raining or not

I've done plenty of both on rainy days, any idea of the reasons behind why not? Pressure or temperature fluctuations and back pressure or something?

Wow, hadn't heard that one. I've racked on snowy, rainy, clear, cold, hot, dry, and humid days. I don't think the wine or beer is adversely affected by it.

Fishing on the other hand...
