Default Water Under the Paint

It rained for a bout a week and a half here in Central California and the other day I noticed there was quite a bit of water under the clearcoat on my spoiler. I cant figureout how the water got through the paint other that the fact that it was a cheap TJ paint job. I was just going to leave it and hope it would evaporate and leave the way it came in. My hopes were dashed when it started to snow today. Now im concerned that the freezing water would make the problem alot worse. I decided to poke some holes in the clearcoat in hopes that it would give a place for the expanding ice to go but now im thinking that that may cause the clearcoat to crack. I am working on a repaint (John Deer Blitz Black) but i wasnt planning on getting to the spoiler for a long time luckily its small and easy to remove. I was just wondering what i should have done just in case it happens again.

I'm going to say it got under the clearcoat because the clearcoat it going bad and lifting from the colorcoat.
