In the rain little bits of glass stick to the tires and are therefore give more opportunity to puncture the tire.
With the gatorskins, I found that glass would pierce the kevlar and a tiny bit would be left underneath the belt, which would then look un-pierced/undamaged leaving the tiny bit of glass virtually impossible to find, particularly in the dark and rain, but ready to puncture your new/repaired tube again.
YMMV of course.
Something you might find helpful: if you use metal tyre levers, run the spoon/lever end around the inside of the tyre a few times to dislodge any fragments still in there. I learned to do this after using my thumb and finding the glass sliver the hard way: with blood and pain.
