Most likely archers will have good 40%-60% reduction in range, accuracy and damage during rain - as realistically their bow-strings would be wet and they won`t be able to fire.
We can also make all the torches and stuff go out during rain to reduce visibility - but debating this - as the night-time without torches doesn`t look that good.
Perhaps you cover them so they are protected and they are simply dimmer? it woudl also have a good effect as the light wouldnt shine upwards but downwards
