If you had an undercarriage carwash, the excess water could be evaporating due to the heat from the engine.

I notice this EVERYTIME it is damp and rainy out, what gives?

i get that condensation gets into the exhaust but it appears like smoke. I know there is nothing wrong with my car and this is normal but
It is definitely normal, this usually happens when I have a cold start and the smoke slowly goes away after a bit of driver.

+1, most likely you have a gasket leak. You said you don't smell anything so I'm not sure if it is
