My front is steaming i think

I have a 2008 wrangler and noticed that when I'm sitting at stop light and waiting I can see steam coming from my front by the radiator. I just had the water pump replaced but it's still doing it. It does it in the cold wet so I think it's just steam but trying to make sure.

Are you sure it's the radiator, can you actually see the steam source?

No I can never see where it coming from and when I stop to look I see nothing. That's why I thought it might be just rain or snow on my radiator fins or something.

My 2001 WJ 4.0 and my 1995 YJ4.0 both do the exact same thing. It is cool damp air hitting the hot radiator, if my guess is right.

Same here in Florida when it rains hard enough. I found it using a back up camera from Autozone lol. Mounted it facing the rad.
