My power steering goes out temporary when it rains, what can be the cause? on 2005 Hyundai XG350

When driving in the rain and over puddles, my power steering becomes very hard and I must use all my strength to turn the car. The power steering comes back after a few seconds. It makes it very difficult to control my Hyundai XG350 when parking or turning. What can this be? It only happens when it rains. It started happening that last two years. The car is a 2005.

Tighten the belts a little more as the moisture is causing it to loose traction on the pulley. Also not having the plastic cover on underneath the front will exaggerate the situation.
