Keeping a Boxster covered in bad weather?

I recently bought a 13 year old Porsche Boxster S and the paintwork is in very good condition. It is stored outside overnight and in the day time (at the station weekdays).

I do have two old but good quality Hamilton covers which fit. Should I be using these overnight all the time,when heavy rain or snow is forecast, or all the time in the winter?

Only when poor conditions are forecast and before the stuff begins to fall. Never cover a wet car.
