We purchased a 2017 CRV Touring about 6 weeks ago but haven’t driven it a lot since being quarantined because of Covid 19. Today my wife drove it to work and had to leave it outside in the rain. She complained to me that as she backed out of the parking space the brakes screeched incredibly loud. I suspect this is do to rotors and pads being wet as there was not a problem driving home when the car was going forward.
Is this normal as I suspect or should I have the dealership look at it? Back in the day I had similar a similar problem with my Dakota and my mechanic pointed out different materials were being used for brake pads as asbestos was phased out. He put some type of compound to quiet the brakes, but it didn’t go away completely.
Feedback anyone?

Disc brakes commonly squeal or screech to some extent when a foreign substance (including water) come into contact with them. Furthermore, it's not uncommon for a light coating of rust to build up on the rotors in a matter of hours when they stationary and subjected to continuous moisture. It comes off within moments of brake use but it can cause a squeal or a screech.

its normal, go drive it in the rain then leave it for a few days it you look at the disc you can see the oxidation.
Drive a block until the "friction" stops then you'll see then look perfect
