Distributor Moisture 91 Ford Probe

I have had has this car a year. When it rains or when humidity is high, it is hard to start, backfires, and when it starts runs rough for a few miles. It is moisture in the distributor because I can remove and wipe out the inside of the distributor cap and it starts right up and runs fine. It is not dirt, the cloth comes out clean. It strikes me that the cap is just sitting on metal and there is no seal. Is there a gasket missing? I am thinking of making a gasket.
