Moisture gathering on Windshield

Recently I've noticed my inside window has been fogging up like crazy is this normal? Or is moisture coming in from somewhere?

Could be the windshield leaking. Also there is a couple of drains for the cowl, located down low on the fire wall. They clog up with leaves, then force the water inside. To unclog them, just stick your fingers in and pull out the trash. You have one on each side. Could be many things, but these are the most common two.

If it's cold outside then it could just be you breathing inside your car, you can clear up the windshield by just blowing cold air on it with the AC or roll down the windows. The fog should vanish in a couple seconds. I don't think it's a problem with your car, I sat in my car with my girlfriend for like an hour or two and there was enough fog on the inside of my windshield to which I couldn't see what so ever, and it took about 6 seconds for the AC to clear it up completely. There's a setting on the AC to make it blow on the windshield, I can't for the life of me remember what it's called but for me it's all the way to the right, there's a button at the bottom too to make it blow on my rear windshield.

Not as much. But the under side of my drivers carpet is damp. I may have to put the top down and check those drain holes again. I've checked the windshield because I thought that was the culprit.

Same happens to me in the cold weather. I brought it to ford and they "checked all seals of all windows" and said everything looks to be fine. It's only when get off work 5:30am and it is cold outside. But I will have moisture on the inside of my window. Bothers the sh1t out of me. Always having to clean my window

It doesn't blow anything on the rear. You are turning the rear defroster on -that's what the grid is on the window. It heats up to clear the window.
