    Hi, Stephanie,
    I'm a litte bit confused by your sentence and question. I guess you wanna know the grammatical terms. Here goes:
    In your sentence, like [list] predicate / verb
    rainy[list] adjective
    weather[list] noun

    Yes, As Ron said the predicate is "like rainy weather". The predicate consists of the main verb plus any adverbs, objects, complements and their modifiers.

    hi Stephanie
    I must admit I was wrong. Don't get confused by my explanation.
    Mike NY and Ron Bee are right.
    My apology :(
