Default Deer and Rain???

I know this has probably been discussed on here alot recently but I havent had the chance to check the site for a while. It has been raining all day and last night here in my part of South Dakota, what effect does rain have on deer? I was hoping to hunt this afternoon, should I still go or are my chances of seeing deer slim?? Any advice would be great!! Thank You!

My experience is anything over moderate rain to pouring rain has been unsuccessful.
Same with wind over 15mph.
I don't waste my time anymore, as I only can hunt so much and try to save it for favorable weather.
Maybe I will in the future when I buy a ground blind, so I won't have water running down my back and prunning all my body parts.
