I remember helping out with a very wet HAB launch, holding the balloon with litres of rain running round the balloon and down my arm.  Best to avoid :)

I've always wondered how much extra a wet balloon, parachute, line and payload weighs.  I've just put in a fair few more Stirks to compensate - but it would be good to quantify.
