    Can I apply dry lube over White Lightning?

    I've been running White Lightning on my chains down here in humid Texas. It's been doing the job fine without making a black greasy mess of things like wet lubes tend to do. Thing is, I'm planning a ride this weekend and the forecast is rain, so I'd like to put some dry teflon lube over the chain. Can I do this without deep cleaning or degreasing the chain to get the White Lightning off? It's been about 100 miles since the last application so maybe it's worn off a bit, but are there any issues with mixing the two types of lubes?

    Also, I'm just using the dry lube because I have some left. I'm not sure if a wet lube like Prolink would be a better choice for rainy weather...

    Prolink claims to be a good wet and dry lube.
    3 years commuting while there's no snow on the ground. 20km round trip.

    Ok, so I did a long dry-humid-wet ride this weekend with Prolink on the chain. By the end about 150 miles the chain was covered in a thick layer of black crud. I guess my next question would be how to remove the Prolink completely so I can put my trusty White Lightning back on...(never mind, I'm sure a full degreasing will do the trick).
