We made pizzas outside in the rain on Christmas eve. ;) There was a lot of fog coming up from the outside of the oven, but the exterior is fine. The oven is stone-faced and the grout has separated from the stone very slightly. (this happened when we broke it in, and it's practically unnoticeable -- oven also sitting in sunny Southern California...) I cannot imagine any functional damage being received from any weather conditions. Maybe if you get a LOT of rain water might actually erode grout away through the cracks over time, but I should think this would be purely cosmetic. I.E. weathering gives character. ;)

I am not sure about other types of oven facing, but the ones I can think of should be even tougher.
