Question Rav4 idle's rough in wet weather

Any thoughts on my mother in laws vehicle? She owns a 1998 Toyota Rav4 that when there is any wet/damp weather and she starts the car, it runs like its about to stall. This stops when the vehicle warms up. Thanks for the advise. Beer 4U2

Time for new spark plug wires. If she looked under the hood, just after starting it and in a dark place, she will see little sparks leaping from the wires to nearby metal parts. When the car warms and the moisture dries, more more sparks or rough idle.
