We had a similar thing happen with our cable... we'd get high upload latency and packet loss when it rained.

Turned out that the contractor who replaced the coax on our block didn't use the right grade of cable... the weight of the water plus wind would stretch the cable and open a crack in the housing.

The old phone line here has a similar problem. The bandwidth goes to shit when the weather turn bad. Likely there is a crack somewhere and a combo of wind and Dian gets inside.
