Brake Question

I'm going to guess this is just because of crappy brakes but thought Id ask. Anytime it rains or its humid in the early morning the first time I go to hit the brakes the pedal moves about 1/2" and the brakes almost lock up. I just left work and it is raining and I got to about 25mph and hit the brakes and they did lock up, after a couple more times hitting them they are back to normal. Its always had good brake pressure. So I know moisture can get on the brakes but it had only been raining about 5-10 min and for them to lock up that bad didnt seem right so I thought Id ask

Sometimes mine do that too, after washing it. Not always, so I am assuming that on those occasions I am just lucky enough to get the right thing wet.... Just pump them a few times to dry them out and they should be ok, maybe still a little grabby till they dry more.
