It is a common misconception that being out in the rain can directly cause a cold. However, the reason why some people believe it is easier to catch a cold during rainy weather is that viruses that cause colds tend to be more prevalent in colder months when it rains. The rain may also lead people to stay indoors in close proximity to others, increasing the chances of spreading viruses.
