Is the fan coming on? The fan should come on for a bit to clear any old gas and then it tries to light. If the fan hasn't come on, do you have 12 volt to the furnace?

SOunds like the burner and or ignitor may need cleaning. There could be debris obstructing the flow of gas in the burner at the proper spot for ignition or even blocking the path for the high voltage to find ground. If after cleaning you still do not get spark then the control board would be the next place to look.

As the Wizard said check your ignitor with all the rain and moist air the ignitor points may have some dirt on them, also make sure your ground wire for furnace is tight and clean need good ground to ignite.
