My car will not start when it rains. It starts up fine on a dry day. It is not a battery issue, I had it replaced a few days ago. What could the problem be?

Do you

Thank you for such a quick reply! I do not have any codes.

The car cranks but it does not start. I'm wondering if it could be an issue with bad spark plug wires? Or is it possible that one of the wires may be touching the engine, and that the electrical current gets absorbed by it during wet weather instead of it being delivered to the spark plug?
