You may have heard that some satellite internet service customers deal with annoying problem called rain fade. This occurs when cloud cover is low due to the weather. Rain fade can definitely interfere with your service, because the clouds block your dish’s connection to orbiting satellites. In addition, falling rain can interfere with your signal as well. While there’s nothing you can do about this phenomenon, many satellite ISPs have put what they call hybrid systems in place. These systems allow ISPs to switch to land-line backups when weather events occur, and cause very little interruption to service. In addition to this, it is said that a larger dish will allow for a better overall signal. There are also covers for your dish that can be purchased. Some sources suggest readjusting your dish for optimum azimuth, but this is not a good idea when inclement weather is occurring.
