In brief: Depends on condition

Windy, wet, hot, cold are all very different conditions and must be taken into account when training.
Certainly a wet surface will make you more prone to a slip and fall and perhaps that would be a good track day or indoor cross training day. Hot-think fluids and sunsreen; cold-think layers. http://www.worldkeepsrunning.org/advicepage.aspx?adviceid=16.
