moisture mean theres water that touch it, but as long as you are sure its not soak, i dont see any problem. Just watch to not run where theres a lot of snow , because it will go into the fender. Where the filter is.

It happen to me after a big snow storm, i was not hearing whine , so i decided to take a look under the car and saw that the inside of the bumper where the filter is was fully packed with snow.

moisture is not going to hurt anything, as long as the filter is an oil charged (ie K&N) and not getting fully saturated, your in business

I agree with Mike though... if you are packed with snow..it could be tough to get air.
