WON'T START IN WET WEATHER

1989 Volvo 240

Engine Mechanical problem
1989 Volvo 240 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 230000 miles

our 240 DL won't start if the weather is wet. It seems to run and start fine on dry days. Not knowing what to try we have changed the plugs and wires. Yesterday the car ran fine had many stops to make and it restarted everytime. Then it rained over night and this morning it would not start again. Oh,
I almost forgot we did replace the battery, too.
Any help would be most appreciated!
