Central Lock problem

I seem to be having a problem with my locking on the driver's door (4door), but only when it is wet/cold.

When the weather is wet/gets a bit colder, then when I open the car via the trunk (all the door lock cyl's are fubar), all door locks pop up, but the driver's lock sometimes only pops up halfway, leaving my door still locked. If I pull the knob up and down it locks/unlocks as it should.

Do the actuators need to be adjusted, or is it possible that there is water getting into something and causing a malfunction? If anyone has had this problem before, and fixed it, throw me some options as I'd like to get this sorted out before winter comes. Thanks,
