Default CB antenna & lightening risk?

Everyone seems to agree that it is safe to be inside a vehicle during a lightening storm if the windows are up.

Picture a magnetic CB antenna placed on the vehicle's steel roof with the cable running through a closed door's rubber seals to the CB box under the driver's seat. Would this setup in any way diminish the vehicle's safety factor for occupants while driving in a lightening storm?

Thanks in advance. (I'm a fairly new wheeler and don't know much. I have not yet needed to drive in a bad storm with my magnetic CB antenna in place, but next week I may very well need to do it big time.)
