You're just going to have to be patient and persistent. Take her out on leash, keep her leash on (you can even tether her to you) in the house so she can't wander off, or put her in the crate for a short time when you come inside, and then try her outside again.
Halo was born in Connecticut in November, by the time she was old enough to go outside there was snow on the ground. I don't know if she'd ever seen rain before, but she was not a fan! We take the dogs outside through the garage, which has a door into the side yard that we use as a dog run. There's also a dog door there, and I had to block it off to prevent her from running back into the garage to do her business to avoid being outside in the rain.
Took her a little while to get used to it, but as an adult, she'll stand around outside in the rain with no problem.
