Even with compression connectors I recommend that any connectors outdoors be sealed against moisture intrusion. A gradual ingress of water into the connector will seep into the coaxial shield and be wicked up the cable and will eventually cause signal degradation which can be difficult to diagnose. I use self fusing silicone tape available at your local big box home improvement store to seal my outdoor antenna connections.
