Answer: Condensation occures when two very differing temperatures meet thru a pane of glass(in this case). The inside is much colder than the outside the pane will condensate, and vise versa in winter cold air out/ hot air in condensation occures. To prevent it happening, equalize inside to outside temperatures a little.
