Your pods are being held upside down, methinks you would have to be in a hurricane or under water for anything to get it.
I suppose if you were really paranoid you could also put a piece of serran wrap across the top under the lid, and then secure the lid down. It's serran wrap, it's cheap, why would you care about re-using it?
However, if you're really really paranoid why don't you just buy a waterproof container to use as pods? Sports water bottles are water tight. Many fit in pod holders and have large openings you can un-screw. I bought one exactly like this one at the dollar store and it fits in a pod perfectly;

I wouldn't be concerned so much about direct contact with the rain so much as moisture in the air. The fat-boy style pods do a pretty good job of being air tight, but it still won't be perfect.
I myself still wouldn't be concerned about it. The moisture in the barrel, and the paintballs in your marker are pretty much gonna make all the work you did to keep them dry in the pods a moot point. Plus rain hitting your paint mid-flight doesn't help either.
It sucks, I know!

Maybe I just need to worry about more important things like peace in the world and ending world hunger...

Yes, that is a joke ---->
If you really want something to cover the pods, use a can koozie. You can pick up the cheap collapsable ones on ebay for a dollar or 2. Just stitch them up so they aren't collapsable so you can keep rain out.
But if you ask me, if you are getting water in your pods, it's time for a new set. I've dunked my pods underwater without any moisture getting in.
EDIT: Saw your new post. If it's just the moisture from humidity you want out. Tape a small dessicant pack on the inside wall of the pod. If you use tiny one, ball capacity shouldn't be affected too much.

Get some sort of silicone epoxy or a gasket maker and put a thin ring around the inside of your pod lid. When it dries, snap it down on the lip of the pod, and it should be sealed air tight! It should last longer than press and seal or paper towel.
