2001 VW Golf, 2L, 8v, gas with manual transmission. Car misfires and shakes very bad first time in the morning right after rainy night or simply very humid weather, but after it fully warmes up it drives like a champ. On dryed times it starts and runs showing no problem at all. Any one any idea?

Start with plug wires. You can lift the hood after dark and mist some water around the wires using a spray bottle while the engine is running and see if there's any arcing.

You aren't the only one: I just got a 02 Jetta GLS, 2.0L, manual, off a used car dealer's lot, the employees washed the car, stuttered and stumbled for the first 10-15 minutes, once it warmed up, it's all good. My 98 Jetta GLS was just as bad, until I packed all the HV wires with dielectric silicone grease, drove out all the water, and that was that.
