It is possible. But also mind that your tires are perhaps more worn down than a year ago and/or they are not sufficiently pumped up (or whatever it is called in english)? A good new tire with 2-6 Bar (or 6-9 Bar with racing-bikes) of air pressure has less chance of being punctured than an older tire or an tire with less than 2 bar of air pressure.
When the tires are wet the debris sticks to it. A lot gets thrown off as the wheel rotates but any that is sharp and that survives one turn of the wheel gets hammered in when it hits the road. As @mattnz said, the water also lubricates the sharp object as it goes in. In another answer, I have recommended to brush your tires, but that it not really feasible ...
Yes, it's because the rain washes more debris onto the road which can then cause punctures. The wet tyres are also easier to damage (couldn't find out why but I guess because it softens the rubber) Source: Bicycle by Helen Pidd
