Can I paint in the rain? Exterior walls that are under cover (carport).

Yes and no, but not recommended. As long as the surface isn't wet or damp and will remain dry then yes you can paint a covered surface in the rain. This only applies to using a very good acrylic paint, no oil base. The drying time will drastically increase and there is a chance the film could trap some residual moisture and have bubbles. I would just wait for better weather.
