Q.Is It Ok If Pumpkins Get Rained On During The “curing” Period After Picking?
There is lots of info about picking them and how to store. For example Leaving them in full sun to allow the sun to harden the skin prior to storage, and covering them if a fros5 looks likely with shade cloth, but if they are in full sun for 2 weeks AND it rains, is that OK? Or do you need to move them in and out of the weather as well as the frost? Appreciate any advice.

The rain won't affect them, too much. As long as the curing time is mostly sunny, that is.
As long as there is no frost, you can leave them out in the rain.
