  1. There are such a thing called HYDROPLANING, which is caused by a thin layer of water between your tire and the road when it rains. Losing control is quite easy in conditions like that. Best results is to drive slowly to avoid your car lifting from its contact with the watery road. Because just a slight touch of the brakes can have you losing control in conditions like that.
