Default squeaky belt

i have a problem but its weird, it only squeaks when it rains, like itll rain overnight and my belt will squeak when i first start my truck then itll stop squeaking after like 2 miles. what could be the cause of that? i think that its simply the belt getting wet then "drying" off
anyone got a possible solution to the problem

more than likely it's just the belt getting a little wet and drying off... take and look at your belt and if it's shiny on the inside of it that's why it takes it a couple miles to stop....

I would replace it by the time its 10 years old no matter what the millage. The belt tensioner too.

Mine acted up for a couple weeks and was loud and annoying, but then suddenly it stopped. Ford's are known to have this issue, and several members recommend the Gatorback belt for replacement and the tensioner. Also, I do not know what the owner's manual says, but I do know that people like changing the belt between 30-40,000 miles. Mine has 50,000 and is fine.
