I see no one has answered yet.

My 2 cents: Its so strain dependent but to be honest 2 weeks of rain right at the end of harvest is not a favorable position to be in. All you can do is keep you eyes on them. Open up the buds look deep inside to make sure mold is not starting. There are fungicides you can spray but I'm not in favor of spraying during flower.

That happened to me last year.

If you take them down now you will lose most of the potential harvest.

Wait and you risk mold.

I got myself a couple of cheap portable greenhouse and took the plants inside it, the problem with it, inside the greenhouses was really humid, so the risk of mold was incredibly high. I checked the buds everyday, eventually I detected 1 infected bud (out of 7 plants) and harvested, even so I lost, I would say, half of what I expected. but better than losing all of it.

Alternatively you can bring them inside and put them by a sunny window.

it sucks, but for me in my climate it's pretty normal(had some late plants last year that experienced non-stop rain/drizzle for at least the last month)

check every day, and look for leaves sticking out of a bud that look a bit wilted or discolored. if you see any such leaves, pull it: if it comes loose easily, you've probably got budrot. fold/push open the bud at that spot and check where the rot is. usually it starts somewhere inside, close to the stem, and by looking for slightly wilted leaves you can often spot it in the early stage, and cut it out before it spreads.

a trick I've heard, but not actually used myself yet, is to dip the scissors you use in vinegar to kill the mold on the scissors, so you don't infect a new spot when you make a cut(I did however do disinfection with a torch lighter, going over the cutting edge of the blade between cuts, but vinegar seems more convenient).

especially after you first spot budrot, keep checking every day. some plants handle it quiet ok and don't get any rot, or take a while of bad weather to develop any. but once the first rot is spotted, it usually keep re-appearing, potentially every day multiple spots if it stays rainy, and you have to keep a close eye on it or you'll lose a lot.

Get some cheap strapping and some 6 mil plastic, build some quick frames. Wrap the plants when it rains, wrap them when the sun goes down and unwrap when it comes up. Leave the ends open and 10 inches on the bottom when wrapped. Sounds like maine every season.

i remember in an old thread there was a recipe to make a home-made funghicide: half tablespoon of potassium bicarbonate and 1 tablespoon of neem oil (or soap) in 1 gallon of water, they said it's non toxic and totally safe to spray in late flowering. (this is what the thread said, i'm not responsible if it isnt true )

wrapping your plants in plastic seems like the opposite you should do to me.... but I've never tried it, maybe it does work, and maybe it just depends on the situation.
but going by my intuition, I would think the plastic would trap moisture, and ellimate all airflow, while the humidity is in the air no matter if the rain hits the buds or not. I would think getting the wind to hit the plants well is way more important, so I avoid any covering that would decrease wind.
and, at least at my location, autumnrain is more drizzle than rain, all day long, every day again, so you would have to keep the plant wrapped/covered all day(and night). going by the amount of time it's raining it's not even that much water, but just because it's nonstop, and small droplets, air humidity will be at a constant high.
