We don't accept performance bugs without reasons, but I can explain why at least and link this to a valid report from earlier research. Resident Evil games use perf-counters, and saving/loading states, among other things, will break perf-counters. During the rain effects, perf-counters will be in full force with Resident Evil 4, which is why you'll see the slowdown here instead earlier.
That's the behavior I experienced within the game, and if it's just "this area performs slower" aside from that reason, then this may not be valid at all due to it just being more demanding. But, I am fairly certain this is due to hte perf-counter things which likes to be set off.
