Try this:
1. Auto white balance
2. Duplicate original layer to the top
3. Top layer: Colors -> Components -> Channel Mixer:
___R: -70, G: 20, B: 200, Monochrome, Preserve Luminosity
4. Invert B/W layer and set its visibility off
5. Dublicate original layer to the top again
6. Top layer, Color -> Color to Alpha -> Yellow
7. Set top layer to Grain Extract
8. New layer from visible to the top, set visibility of extract layer off
9. Brightness: -90, Contrast: +90
10. Add Layer mask to visible: Grayscale copy of layer
11. Add layer below visible, opacity 40%
12. Fill with blue and set B/W as layer mask
13. Original layer: Hue/Saturation: Y Hue: +30 R Hue: +50

Great.
What about a script doing the opposite (with blue sky, too), for vacation pictures?

With the same trick a newspaper (blick.ch) made blood out of water:
It started a discussion about the power of image manipulation.

Excellent work! But I wonder if the OP meant wet as in drops of moisture on plants and what-not - a glossy look, I suppose.

I put a script on the google site:
sites.google.com/site/elsamuko/gimp/rain
It's working on the example image, but it may produce strange colors on other ones (eg. green roofs).

I tried the sunny script. It really works in typical cases. My only peeve is that it cranks saturation up to 11 - or more like 13 :) - so sometimes it's hard to get a more natural look afterwards. But, elsamuko, you're the king of GIMP scripting!

@AdSR: I added a desaturation layer and changed the hues to less obtrusive defaults. I hope this gives the final image a more natural look:
