Can someone tell me where a mildew smell in my car might be coming from on rainy days if there are no apparent leaks?

For the last year i have noticed that whenever i step into my car and it's raining there is a strong mildew smell. it happens relatively soon after it starts raining.
the smell lasts for a couple days and it even seems more humid inside the cabin until the smell goes away.
i've checked everywhere inside the car and nothing is ever damp. i've brought it to the dealership and they couldn't find any problems.
has anyone else experienced this?
