In this context, 「特に~」would work best. E.g. 特に雨が降ってるとき or 雨が降ってるときに特に

    Does ときに特に sound a bit funny? In my family someone would probably joke about the similarity of these two standing next to each other.

    ^ Then... how about とき特に instead, maybe? 「雨が降ってるときは特に~~」とか... or maybe 「雨の日は特に~」とか...
