The biggest thing in wet conditions for me is... You have to put less force at the end of your stride, that's where the danger of slipping is at its highest. Or around a curve. I would suggest taking some of those wet spots. Do it on purpose, but do it really slow at first. Your friction with the ground will be greatly reduced, maybe moreso than you think. Once you take a few of those wet spots intentionally, you will gain a feel for how it is to skate them and gain the confidence to either skate around them or even over them... Dry days are nice too, but don't torture yourself waiting for the perfect day

Edit: Don't forget to use some extra padding when you're trying out new stuff.
