If you dog is use to using indoor pee pads, I wonder if it's not too late to train your dog to use a potty tray, with your encouragement when the weather is bad? I'd suggest Paw Trax Trays or UgoDog. Put it in a place where you can permanently leave it. Preferably, next to the doggie door. Rub urine and poop on it. Put the pee pads in these trays. The trays have a soft grate on top and lock down, so the pup can't get at the pee pad.
Otherwise, if it were me, I would permanently build an outdoor canopy shelter of some type because there is forever going to be bad weather now and then. Yesterday, in Oklahoma we had a downpour that lasted all day and night, with little let up in-between storms.
We, also, have a Goldendoodle who would pee in the house if the weather was bad, if there were Fireworks or something else that bothered her. It was a while before we figured it out and ended up having to replace carpet. She was doing this at night or when no one was around.
We solved that problem by gating off most of the house from her. She is permitted in a few rooms with access to the doggie door. Since she won't pee where she stays, she is forced to go outside in bad weather.
If you dog is peeing in the house during bad weather this is a pattern and it's not going to get better. So, another option is to limit where the dog can be during inclement weather and force her to use the doggie door to break the pattern.
