I would think the CAI would net slightly higher MPG because of the colder air.

I honestly don't think that's a big deal. I drove through a really bad rain storm the other day and never had a lick of trouble.

If you drive through 8-10" standing water maybe, but not normal rain w/ puddles.

Puddles aren't gonna affect your CAI. If this was the case we'd all take out our CAI when it rained. Just let it be you'll be fine.
