battery drain

Similar to an espace problem quoted a few monthe ago. Intermittent battery draining. I am getting convinced its to do with wind and rain. Lat week drove to Tenby with caravan. Rained and blew all night. Car completely dead in the morning. AA called and jump started. Went fine for a week until it lashed down again. Completely dead again. Had this problem last year during winter months. Tried Renault, no fault found at the time. Tried an autolec. Had car for 2weeks, no problems. Happened several times afterwards, so I used to carry spare battery and jump leads. It only seems to happen after torrential rain and wind. I have checked all bonnet seals and looked for water ingress, but nothing. If it starts to play up again this year, its got to go. Anyone help please.
