This weather is just ridiculous, but I got to admit todays weather is great compared to a couple ofdays ago. and no dude just do your normal driving you will be okay, just avoid fast acceleration while there is puddle of water and you wil be good.

Unless it's raining cats and dogs, puddles, or freeway driving during rain I wouldn't worry too much about it. I have a FSWerks CAI and it CAN start to suck up water in the before mentioned situations. I would suggest keeping the rpms lower in those situations. I have found under 3K to be fine, but I did get close to hydrolock once while it was pouring down while on the freeway. Got home and grabbed ahold of the filter and it was leaking water out because of how wet it was. I was lucky that day fo sho.

El Paso is weird for hail when it is hot. Last summer it was 110 then suddenly it started raining, then hailing almost golf ball sized hail. I wouldnt even bat an eye at marble sized hail but it still is weird to see for some.
