Your sump pump pit should also have a vent. Make sure this vent is tied into the main stack or individually vented. Otherwise all sewerage/ gasses dumped into this chamber will vent to the surrounding area. i've found that the rain isn't the issue but that the air is "heavier" at that time and the gasses don't dissapate as quickly.
