A question about Rain

Just for a change, it's raining here in the middle of 
Washington State (DN06ig).
It's usually very dry at this time of year..... after all, 
we're supposed to be a desert !!
So my question is this... 
Can anyone inform me as to the effects (if any) of Rain 
clouds on 2M/70cm satellite downlinks.
Alternatively, point me to a URL where I can read about it.
It seems to me that there should be significant attenuation 
of the signal... Am I correct ??
