If you are talking about Freeview we have had poor reception just recently in the bad weather. I can only think that the millions of fine rain drops between us and the transmitter somehow scatters the radio energy resulting in poor reception.

We can actually see the transmitter mast (Pontop Pike) from our bedroom window on a clear night, (it is about ten miles away) so there is nothing else getting in the way.

High atmospheric pressure can also affect radio signals in the UHF spectrum.
