I fondly recall an open house I did on a very wet day here in San Diego. Not only did I have a great open house, I had an agent deliver an offer to be my the end of the open house. Only time that's ever happened to me so I consider tain a good omen.
Honestly though, the hard part is putting up signs if it is raining heavily...not easy or fun to do while wearing professional clothes.
Serious buyers will not be afraid of a little rain. I actually thought it was agood time to view properties, because I could see if there was any roof damage.
So, put on some extra layers, make some hot chocolate and have a rainy day open house.
Best of luck to you!

Generally, the buyers who come to an Open House in the Rains are
the most committed and serious. While one can feel good with a regular turn
out of say 8 - 18 groups, the issue is how many are Serious Buyers.
The Buyers out in the rain are the most serious.
I showed homes to 2 folks today on X-Mas and they are committed and qualified.
Best of Luck.
What you won't get are the "lookies" who are just killing time on a Sunday.
Part of life is living up to your word.
If you said you were going to be there, then be there.
If no one knew other than you, the choice is yours.
Use a remove shoes sign at the door and bring a couple of Kitchen mats for near the front door for them to take their shoes off.
This will show both buyer and seller that you care about the house even though you did not think to do a 10 day weather dot com looksie before you scheduled it.

If you have one, or can buy or rent one, put a pop-up tent near the entrance and add extra door mats where people can wipe their feet or leave their shoes.
