Vent expelling vapor when AC ON

My right center vent on an '05 intermittently expels a visible cloud of what seems to be water vapor when the AC is on. Does anyone have any experience with this type of thing?

Here's what my 2000 OBW owner's manual says about the condition: Cooling and dehumidifying in high humidity and low temperature weather condition -
Under certain weather conditions (high relative humidity, low temperatures,
etc.) a small amount of water vapor emission from the air outlets
may be noticed. This condition is normal and does not indicate any
problem with the air conditioning system.

I've had this happen on other cars like my old Volvo. It concerned me at first too.
