Default Water in my intake

I have a 2003RS. I have a carbon fiber hood in which a WRX hoodscoop is on top and i'm also running an intake right underneath the scoop. I've read posts that its okay to have some water going in, but should I take out my intake or would the little amount of water be minimal that its alright?

You mean you have an air filter right underneath the hoodscoop right on the throttle body right? And not some intake pipe?

It'll be fine for light rain and stuff I think, but of course monsoon like rain it'll be best to cover it up.

I've had my vents open in rain before with my filter sitting right underneath one vent without any problems.

The intake pipe is right underneath the hood scoop but it can easily drip towards the air filter.

Knowing Vancouver weather, I'm not sure what my options are.

Do you have the Technik intake setup? If you do don't worry about it, I've been running without my hoodscoop backing plate for months and its fine.
