I just started running in January so take that into consideration. When I plan my running schedule (I'm doing a C25K program so I plan 3 days a week), I take the weather into consideration. So far I've only run in the snow and not the rain. It did hit 90 degrees 2 weeks ago so I went to the gym for that. Otherwise, I've just adjusted my schedule based on the forecast.
A note about wearing appropriate clothing: So I went for a run in my cotton "athletic" pants in the snow. I ended up giving up half way through! My pants had soaked up so much water that they had stretched out a good 6-8 inches and I had to walk on them my entire way home. It was a wet, muddy mess!
Rain or shine, windy or calm, daylight or dark, snowing or not, I run one of two routes, at the same time of day - 5:30 AM. It matters not to me the month or season, I am outside running.
(Note: I live in the Pacific NW so we have few tornadoes, no hurricanes, and no severe blizzards in winter and it seldom gets over 85 degrees in summer. I have never been in temperatures around 100 degress F.)
If you go out in any weather, be prepared with the appropriate clothing!

Run outside. I would rather run in the rain than in 100+ degree weather with humidity.
