Squeal when its wet outside?

My 02 GT has been squealing lately, but only when it rains or is damp outside. The squealing will happen on startup but as soon as the engine starts to warm up (about 5-10 minutes) the squeal stops. I looked quickly at the belt and nothing seemed wrong. Could I have overlooked something? What's causing this annoying squeal, I hate it.

I'm not entirely sure what it could be,


But I know that a video would of your problem would help find the cause of the problem

More than likely its enough moisture to make your belt slip a bit and make a squeeling noise. Change the belt it should go away.

^+1; the belt is old and glazed, and slips when "lubricated" by the damp environment...

New belt. I got a beefy *** one from advance last time I got one from there and it was great on my Cobra. I don't drive the GT in the rain so I dunno if it does it lol.
