Cyclocross-
They look like a road bike but with more rugged tires.
The frame geometry is a bit different than a road bike though (such as more clearance for obstacles).
Guys race them on + off road, but they have gained popularity as commuter bikes.

They typically have disc brakes (which get good reviews but are supposed to be good in wet weather). They will be lighter than a mountain bike or hybrid.

Someone who knows more about bikes can tell you more.

As I said I like road bikes too and I know people use them as an all around commuter but for me it seems like driving a Ferrari around a city to run errands.

One other thing about cyclocross, you could throw fenders on it for wet weather but from what I understand, it'd be hard or not possible on many road frames.
