That happens to my cell phone. I will leave it on in the car overnight, flip it up when I get in the next morning and its foggy as hell. It has been around 0-25 degrees here for a week.

Moisture will cause the fog. Are your floor mats or carpeting particularly loaded up with snow or water?

Yep, sounds like normal condensation if it'* on the outside.

Trying running your AC on hot for a while. That'* supposed to help de-humidify the cabin
